MY REVIEW

Great cookies! I always like finding soft cookie recipes. I used the Royal Icing and it set up great. I didn't use a pastry bag, I only made stars and just spread it on with a knife. I decreased the baking time on mine because I thought they were getting too brown, maybe I made them a bit thinner than the recipe called for. I actually shipped them to my husband overseas!

Delicious cookies, but I have never been able to get 10 dozen out of the dough though.

This was an excellent recipe, easy to make and rolled out and tasted great. Only I made them as "Canada Day" cookies and everyone wanted the recipe. Thank You!

These cookies were a pain to ice and really didn't have any flavor.
