"This is auntiechooch again. for some reason I lost the review I was writing. We are suppose to put our baked goods in a zip lock box. But since I only got 9 out of my batch of dough, and ny frosting is not hardening so I think I am going to stand them up in a piece of styrofoam. I know the cookies will be a big hit. Thak you for sharing your recipe and talent. Take Care and May God Bless You,Fondly, Auntiechooch"
