These cookies are awesome! I ate so many, I had a hard time stopping! They were really good. Since I didn't have any cookie cutters, I used a wine glass to get out the shape. But now I can't wait to go shopping and get some fun cookie cutters specifically for this recipe. It was easy, I didn't do anything different and I am definitely going to make them again!
