I made these this weekend as part of my annual Christmas cookie frenzy. They were very easy to make and looked beautiful when finished. These will add a touch of elegance to my christmas cookie tins.

Kelley, I made these last night and they were very easy to make. Your recipe says 36-42 cookies but I got 50 exactly. I would have gotten more if I had made the balls a little smaller. These cookies turned out delicious and looked very elegant when they were finished. Thanks for a great recipe!

Never even thought of "making" the cookie part. the way I learned was to use the store bought frozen or refrigerated peanut butter cookies but the rest is the same. (good for when you don't have time to make them but I like the fully homemade version you gave) Awesome recipe!
