Fixing desserts is my favorite kind of cooking. I usually make these cookies for Christmas—their pale-white adds a special touch to all the reds and greens. We—my husband, our daughter (6) and I—live on a real dirt road! I'm a full-time wife and mother. Our second child's due to join us in mid-January.

"Although the taste of these cookies was good, they were not pretty. Even after refrigerating overnight they still spread out too far and burnt around the edges. I used parchment paper, they came off nicely, just wasn't what I was looking for."

"Awful! The cookies spread all over the pan and wouldn't bake normally - they were burnt on the outside and raw in the centres. I'll never make these again."
