I have made these a couple of times and while they are good in their own way, they just never make me inspired to make them a member of the permanent recipe collection. I find them just a little too spongy, almost a slightly more solid scone. I may be biased though, I am looking for the a recipe that replicates the round frosted cookies with sprinkles that are sold in plastic "clam shells" or the large round ones with pink frosting sold individually wrapped at convenience stores.

The flavor of these were very good, especially with Butter Cream Icing (Buttercream Frosting) on them. They do spread and puff up quite a bit so I recommend using a smallish cookie cutter. I used a Christmas tree shaped one and they turned out HUGE. The kids all like the big cookies, but several of the adults didn't want to take them because they were so large. If you are going to have them on a Christmas tray, smaller is definitely better. ;)

What an absolutely light and delicious cookie. Made these for Christmas and gave some to friends and still had plenty to serve to guests that came to the house. I separated the dough into 2 bowls and flavoured one with lemon and the other with almond and then decorated them using Kittencal's Easy One-Bowl Vanilla Cupcakes (Really Easy & Good Buttercream Icing) in festive colors. These have found a home in my favorite cookie recipe book. Was good of you to share this one, Pamela in Winnipeg.

These are very easy to make and taste good. I used butter instead of shortening but otherwise stuck to the recipe. They took about 10 minutes and I used melted chocolate and coloured sprinkles for decoration. Thanks for sharing.
