I love these cookies! The dough is easy to work with and they're delicious. Every time I make them, they are a hit. I've become famous for these at Christmastime.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 20, 2011

Not overly impressed with this cookie. They did bake nicely with good texture, but they are rather bland. I think it could use more sugar or maybe a lemon or orange flavoring.
