These cookies were super easy to make. I made them for a Girl Scout activity and they were the first ones to go. I have made them several times with different cookie cutters for different holidays and they are always a success. I always make a sugar glaze even royal icing to decorate. I give you my word they will be a hit!!! Enjoy

These cookies were pretty good~! I realized that I didn't have enough flour, so I had to use half of every ingredient...I hope that was okay... The cookies turned out kind of bland, but then again, I didn't add any sugar or glaze or anything like that--but I thought they were good just by themselves anyway!

I really hate writing bad reviews but I feel I must to save others from wasting their time and money on such a poor quality recipe. The cookues are tasteless and have an almost sponge-like consistency. I had to salvage the dough by adding sugar and milk..still didnt make an improvement. Sorry.

All 3 of us do not like these cookies. After making half and realizing no flavor and that it has a very doughy taste I took the last half, divided it into 3's and added brown sugar, powder sugar then carmel bits to the different batches. None were anything I would make again. I tried another cookie this morning to see if maybe the flavor had grown overnight. Nope. I went right to the trash can and spit it out. It was like eating a spoon full of flower. It dried my mouth right out.
