Pot of Gold Meltaway Cookies

Pot of Gold Meltaway Cookies

This is a hybrid of two different recipes.  I saw the idea for Pot of Gold Cookies over on Your Southern Peach.  I loved how they looked but I’m not a fan of raw cookie dough.  (I know, don’t hate me.)  So I used the idea but changed up the recipe.

I love how they turned out!

 When the cookies were cooled I dipped them in melted chocolate and then gold sugar crystals.  My kids loved them!
