I made these this morning, and they were a huge hit at my house! Cut them out with Mickey Mouse shaped cutters, and my daughter thinks I'm a magic cookie-makin' machine! So yummy! But, for anyone who wants to use a cookie cutter with this recipe, keep extra flour on hand for the cutter, your hands, and the dough - otherwise, it doesn't work out.

I'm making some right now, I substituted peppermint extract in place of the vanilla, and added a layer of melted chocolate on top!
