    IAteMyGluestick's Note:

    I got this recipe from my mother and my favorite cookbook, Betty Crocker's Cookbook. These beautiful cookies are always a hit at parties because they look like little bonbons. These cookies are great to make for children, and it's easy to let them help out.

      So I am giving this a four star rating. I am so mixed about this recipe. The recipe is easy and simple - HOWEVER, when I first made them the dough didn't come together. So I added liquid in and needed to add more. Finally, I was able to get the dough together. I stuck them in the oven, hoping for the bonbon apperance. Well, the looked a little like flat bonbons. I was a bit disappointed, but the cookies tasted good. I stuck a chocolate kiss inside for a kindergarten class "holiday" party. Hubby had one right before I took them over to the class. They are super easy to decorate. I did another batch for Christmas cookies for my neighbors and friends. Again, the dough just didn't want to work with me. It was VERY dry. Well, I thought I could stick them in the fridge for 1/2 hour or so to get them more "bonbon" look-a-like. That seemed to work WAY better. I left them out for a few hours after baking and they were hard. Now, I'm not sure why they got so hard after only a few hours, but I am trying to soften them up a little by sticking them in a bag with a piece of bread, which should work. Overall, I would use these cookies again after making a few changes. I usually don't write this detailed about a recipe, but I want others to know what worked and what didn't in this case. BTW, I love the photo by Detailedbeauty - awesome decorating! Merry Christmas!
