Introduction

These delectable treats are the perfect way to finish of a dinner party or movie night with friends. They are one of my all time favorite desserts or, I find, them perfect to eat at any time of the day. The Chewy biscuits that in case the filling are like nothing you have ever tasted and make taking a bite in to the butter frosted filling extremely satisfying.
