MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 12, 2013

Great cookies. You have to cut them very thin to get the stated amount. I added peppermint flavoring to the red and Fruity Pebbles to the white to make Christmas cookies.

These cookies are great when you need a lot of cookies and don't have much time. They are easy, and tasty. I sometimes add a little raspberry or strawberry extract along with the red food coloring for a different taste
