    Nice sandwich cookie. Definitely, don't forget to flatten the cookie dough balls before baking.

    Absolutely loved these cookies! Should have added a little bit more vanilla to the icing however, as there wasn't a significant vanilla taste. Will absolutely make again!

    Great cookie. I use buttercream frosting mixed with Nutella to put cookies together. Then I pipe a holly sprig on top with colored royal icing.

    Yummy. Everyone loved these and they were so easy to make. My son and I used buttercream and cream cheese frosting from the can to make it easier. We didn't use food coloring but we sprinkled red and green sugar around the edges after putting the sandwiches together. The cookies turned out great.
