    Fun Rollouts!

    Rosanna Marcum from West Salem, OH

    This recipe was quick and easy to make. My children really enjoyed rolling the dough out and getting the chance to use their favorite cookie cutters for a chocolate chip cookie! The cookie isn't really sweet, but the frosting makes up for that and gives it just the right sweetness combination.

    Andrea Smith from Pewaukee, WI

    These looked like something fun and new to make for the holidays and they were delicious - but now too sweet. They were easier to make than I thought and so fun to decorate. We will definitely make these again . . . and again!

    Our Cookie of the Year

    anne boggs from Chambersburg, PA

    I don't know why I've never thought to cut this classic cookie into shapes, but it's the perfect recipe for our family "gift" cookies this year. The kids enjoy cutting them out and everyone enjoys eating them! We will be making lots this year!

    Chocolate Mini Chip Holiday Cookies

    Bettyann Becht from SUSSEX, WI

    This cookie has an excellent flavor. I found if you refrigerate the dough overnight, it will roll better. If you roll it between 2 sheets of parchment paper, you will find that the dough will not stick, and your results will be SUPER ! Children love to decorate them. This is a keeper.

    New Holiday favorite!

    MARY LOU BABIN-Branch from Midway City, Ca

    I made this cookie for Christmas and sent some to family (via mail) and gave out some to neighbors and family here. Received rave reviews and saw the 2 plates of them get cleaned BEFORE Christmas dinner. Very easy to make and pack for mailing. Have added it to my "must bake" list for this year's Christmas cookie list, but also plan to make them for St. Valentine's Day!

    Yummy

    Siew Tin STEWART from FAIRFIELD, OH

    It was fairly easy to make. My son (31/2 yo) & I had a good time making Christmas cookies. This is my first time making cut out cookies. It was a little challenging especially I accidentally used the whole bag of mini chips which in turns made it hard to roll out the cookies & they were brittle once they came out of the oven. Once they were cool & I just use the ready made icing to outline the cookies. It turned out pretty ok. I saved the broken once too & they tasted yummy after all.
