The boy had fun decorating their own cookies. We put a few on each plate along with some frosting so we didn't share germs while decorating! They all got to eat the cookies they decorated and any left over frosting cause mama was feeling nice.
These cookies are H O L I D A Y! The perfect treat for holiday parties and guests, cookie exchanges, just because or even to bring to your neighbors! These are super easy to make and the look like a million bucks!
They do not last long, so I usually double this recipe so that we can get least a few days out of them!
