MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 12, 2012

My batch of cookies tasted like bad pie dough so I tossed the unused dough into the trash after the first tray came out of the oven. I do not understand what I may have done wrong, or why the recipe contains no baking soda or baking powder.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 21, 2011

I used rum in place of the rum extract and these cookies came out great. Really easy to make and very festive when dyed with red and green food coloring.
