These are cute and fun to make but the flavor wasn't the best.

These are adorable...very enticing visually, and the flavor is superb. My son's favorite cookie is a peanut butter chocolate chip, and these certainly rival my old recipe. The pattern makes these irresistible.

I had wonderful results with this recipe! I wouldn't make it for everyday use, because it is a little time-consuming, but it's a very pretty cookie.
