MY REVIEW

FABULOUS! I put these in the goodies baskets I make each year for friends. RAVE reviews on these. Yes the dough is soft and a little tricky, but totally worth it!

Very good. Family loved them. I had to make twice the glaze.

These cookies are delicious! The only issue I had was when it came to getting the dough flattened before rolling. The dough is very soft; I had to use a lot of flour and ended up just patting the dough with my floured hands. Rolling them up required a careful touch and some patience, but it all was worth it! They are so yummy, and definitely a keeper. I'm even going to try the dough recipe to make other types of cookies. In spite of the slight difficulties, it's a winning recipe for sure :-)
