I can't cook but I can bake. I tried this recipe and was very hopeful since it was the first dough I have done that was easy for the cut outs. But they turned out horrible that we threw them out. First for this true fat girl! Maybe I did something wrong. they had no taste and horrible after taste? Maybe it was me?
