Black-Eyed Susan Cookies
Total TimePrep: 25 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling
Cookies are delicious, however, I'm not crazy about the gumdrop. Brown-eyed Susans are on my Christmas plate every year. I always press a chocolate wafer into the center before baking. When they come out of the oven before the chocolate sets I sprinkle red/green jimmies on them.
There was no way I could roll out this dough. I ended up scooping it into round cookies. They tasted good, but we were looking for a good cutout cookie recipe and the finished product looked nothing like what we expected.
Cookies were excellent. I did need to use a lot more flour when using the cookie cutters. Also I used lemon extract instead of the orange extract for half of the frosting recipe! I didn't have any gum drops available so I used M&M's and they worked just as good!
