Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This dough has endless variations. For the Three Willows U C Cookie Walk, Imade two batches of dough. The following are the variations that I made. 1. No additions but rolled, cut out out with Christmas cutters and decorated with coloured sugar. 2. Add green food colouring and mint flavouring then take a small spoon of dough and wrap around a chocolate candy, bake the ice cooled bonbons and cover with chocolate sprinkles. 3. Colour dough pink, add almond flavourihg.
