I really like this cookie, and I’m not a cookie baker. It’s quick and easy to make, but sadly they don’t last very long because of some magical element that allows them to call out to me… Have you tried them? Do they call out to you?

  1. OK the name intrigues me…do you know why they are called that? Do they leak..lol? Are they dark and prefer to hang out in underground garages? Or is it that they lie? They are not really a cookie but a mini cake?

    • I wondered whether anyone would ask that question, Jane! I spent literally hours searching the internet for the answer to that question when I decided to add them. I can find absolutely nothing! My theory is that they may have been developed by one of the chefs at the famous (infamous?) Watergate Hotel restaurant.

      Your ideas are far better, though! Lying mini cakes, passing themselves off as cookies as they make shady deals with Famous Amos and Sara Lee in dark back alleys… Oh yes, much better than my theory!

      Thanks for stopping by!
