|pretty cookies, ready for gifting|
The cookies are very easy to make. The dough is so forgiving and manageable and the quality is the same even after rolling and re-rolling the scraps. After the dough is rolled and cut, it's chilled, then baked. The dough is also great because the baked cookies do not lose their shape or get distorted so what you see going in is what you get coming out.
After they are baked, decorate with icing, sparkly sprinkles...or just enjoy plain!
