Top Review by CherryRed

Pretty good, and they looked cute too. I give this recipe 4 stars because the prepackaged cookie dough was very sweet and it tended to overpower the other tastes a bit. It was also hard to keep the vanilla chips liquid enough to drizzle nicely. Other than that, a really good recipe! I made the lemon curd myself from another recipe on this site.
