I'm not so sure about this recipe. It was definitely easy to make, but the dough for me was very crumbly and hard to work with, and the taste of the cookies was just ok, not too great. I don't think I'll make these again. I'm not much of a baker, so maybe it's just me...

These were a delicious tasting sugar cookie and it was simple to put together! The kids enjoyed helping me make these, decorate them and of course eating them! Thanks for posting! Made for Kid Friendly Recipe Tag...

These are great tasting and easy to make. I had my daughter make the dough and baked them later that night!
