Made these with an 'eat me' stamp for daughter's fifth birthday party -- Alice in wonderland theme. had to chill dough before pressing and chilled after 10 minutes, baked on air bake cookie sheet, right out of the oven dusted with edible glitter, they came out beautiful. Thank you for the recipe, making more for school bake sale now!

I made this as a birthday gift to my grandmother-in-law. She truly enjoyed them, as did I. Given the response I have decided to make each family member a dozen as a holiday gift from the heart along with a box of tea.
