YOu know, I think you're right. I remember a batch I made for a client/friend. I tasted one of them right after I finished it (it was a simple design, so I was able to get it done in one day) and I thought they tasted awful! I worried about it ..... one friend suggested I do a Do-Over. I decided to use them, under the thinking of "we're our own worst critic". So the next day, as I'm putting the bouquet together, I ate one of the extras and couldn't believe the difference! Cookie was softer, flavors....as you said ..... had really come together.
Like marinades and cheeseballs, it just needs time for the flavors to meld.
