Growing up, Brown-Eyed Susans were always one of my favorite Christmas cookies. Although I always felt they should have been called Brown-Eyed Sharleens! After all, I was the only child out of five with brown eyes. That was until my baby brother and sister came along making us a pack of seven and lo and behold they both had brown eyes! Oh well, I was unique for the first 12 years of my life at least!
Brown-Eyed Susans have an almond flavored short bread cookie base with a chocolate frosting center. When I was a child, I would eat the outer edges of the cookie first and save the chocolate center for last. My husband likes to pair these cookies with a cup of coffee and has been known to eat them for breakfast. However you eat your Brown-Eyed Sharleens, I mean Susans, you’ll be sure to enjoy them!
