For me, this cookie is the perfect gifting cookie. Wrapped up beautifully, Brown Eyed Susans are the kind of cookies that are universally loved. So to score a “Grandma Approved” version of the classic, well, I’m feeling like I hit the cookie jackpot. A huge thank you to Shelley’s grandmother for making our cookie adventures that much more delicious.
