These are a family favourite during the holiday season. They are so delicious that I often have to hide them so that they will not be eaten up quickly.
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+
