This request was from someone at the local grocery store. Now, a dunking cookie should not leave crumbs or fall apart when it comes in contact with a liquid. More importantly, it must get better with time and become one with the liquid. This should work well with coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. Lastly, it should taste good, sweet, and earthy with cinnamon, cardamom, and cherries. I hope you like it.
