Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I usually double this recipe. These cookies were a favorite for the kids' Christmas and Easter parties at school. They are delicious and very cute when they are iced and decorated. At Christmas we cut out Christmas trees, iced them with green and then used the colored sprinkles. At Easter we cut out bunnies.
