    Jellyqueen's Note:

    These are easy and attractive cookies. They are light and chewy and you can't eat just one. I usually make them at Christmas, but they will do for any occasion.

      It is true that you can not just eat one. I ended up making a double batch. I knew I wouldn't have time or patience for the glaze so I sprinkled them with chocolate sprinkles before I baked them. Looked pretty and tasted great.

      These are such delicate and attractive cookies it's hard to believe that I made them. I'm really scared of pastry bags, so kept putting off making them, but in the end, they were very very easy. Rather than glaze them, I melted the chocolate and made sandwiches. My chocoholic husband is in heaven. Thank you very much for the recipe.
