My mother made the yummy tinted cookies at Christmastime, and she always baked a big batch. My sister, brothers and I had lots of fun decorating them with colored sprinkles...and sampling them, too!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 26, 2010

These were okay. The dough was a bit stiff for my cookie press. I think it needs a little bit of milk added to soften up the dough. The flavor was good. I put frosting on mine as well.
