    Adie's Note:

    This is a terrific addition to a holiday cookie tray. You can make the cookies more festive by rolling in colored sugar before baking. NOTE: In response to a reviewer and picture, you must be sure to roll the cookies in sugar before baking otherwise they will not be sweet enough or look as nice.

      These are really good! I didn't have any luck with the glass dipped in sugar for flattening so I ended up rolling the balls in sugar and flattening with my fingers. I only got 4 dozen so I guess they were a little bigger than intended (I always seem to have that problem with cookies!) I really like the flavor and texture of these. Thanks for sharing!

      The cookies were okay. They weren't very full flavored sugar cookies, but they did have a nice texture to them.
