      At first I had a difficult time getting the right consistency of the dough, but the cookies turned out to be very delicious. I made some of the pinwheel patterned cookies and some of my own, making circles with different colored hearts inside for Valentine's Day.

      Not an overly sweet cookie. I had to make a slight adjustment to the dough. I found the directions a bit odd, so I made the dough in my Kitchenaid. It was very dry, so I added 4 tbsp. of milk and it came together very nicely then. Baked the full 15 minutes and I had a yield of 36 cookies. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag. :)
