A nice basic cookie, with easy attractive decorating options. I use margarine, rather than butter - the cookies flattened a little in the oven, but were still tasty. We played around with other decorations besides nonpareils, and decided we like the mexican coarse-grained sugar best. (Cocoa/cinammon was tasty, but not very attractive.)

What a delicious, easy and fun cookie! I did not need to refrigerate the dough and had no problem rolling the balls immediately after making the dough. Made for Sweet Traditions.

We loved these cookies! They had a nice vanilla flavor. They were kind of like buttery sugar cookies. My little girl had fun decorating them but beware- the dough is soft and needs to be chilled for about 2 hours in order to roll it inot the little balls. We ended up with 22 cookies so I guess I made them a little bigger than I was supposed to. Made for ZWT5 for the Kitchen Witches.

Wonderful little cookies. I used KA's Mellow Pastry Blend Flour and the 24 I got out of this recipe were light and airy little treasures. Made for ZWT5.
