      These cookies don't have much flavor... they don't taste bad, they just don't taste like much of anything. The texture is quite good, though. These would be excellent decorating cookies without the trouble of rolling out the dough and using cookie cutters like other recipes. The dough is very sticky, even after a couple of hours in the refrigerator. They baked perfectly at 7 1/2 minutes in my oven and I got exactly 36 cookies using a rounded teaspoon.
