I made the dough one day and did the cut outs the next day. I was very impressed!! the dough tasted great. It took me awhile to find the right cookie cutters to do the job but when I did I got very creative. Lots of fun shapes and sizes. I ALSO TRIED DIFFERENT FILLING AND THAT WAS VERY GOOD TOO. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! A+A+A+
Beautiful and elegant cookie when finished! I made these with freshly made peach preserves and also with lingonberry jam and lightly dusted them with superfine powdered sugar - absolutely beautiful and delicious! Much easier to make than I anticipated! Will make at the Holidays! They are worthy of a Christmas gift in a fancy box to be sure!

This past weekend was glorious! We had perfect weather for catching up on our yard work. We spent all of Saturday afternoon weeding and tending to our overgrown “problem” areas. Ryan’s mom, Becky, was even so kind as to come over and play with our toddler so that he could be outside, too – without getting too close to the clipping shears and other dangerous tools.
