    GREAT COOKIE

    Ms. Balschuk from FARMINGDALE, NY

    I did not make stars - I used a different cookie cutter (snowflake) and made some really good cookies. I decorated them and sprinkled crystal sugar on top too. The taste was so good. The kids at school devoured them. VERY GOOD!

    Yummy

    Jackie Saltzman from NORTHRIDGE, CA

    I made these cookies for my son's preschool class with Halloween shaped cookie cutters. Since he is allergic to eggs, this was the perfect recipe. They were a big hit with the children and teachers alike. I added a bit of extra sugar(both powdered and white), which enhanced the flavor. We had a lot of fun decorating the scary shapes! I can't wait to make these again for the next holiday.

    Good cookies!

    susan campbell from grass lake, MI

    I liked these cookies, which were quick and easy to make. Try them with 1/2 c. chopped pecans added to the dough, which adds flavor and texture.

    Mmmmmm...

    mary brown from brooklyn, NY

    Nice chocolate flavor, but not quite sweet enough. The second time I made them, I sprinkled with sugar before baking and they were nicer. I think I will make them again, adding a bit more sugar to the recipe, and I'll drizzle them with white chocolate to decorate.

    A little bitter

    kim burgy from parkersburg, WV

    A very easy recipe, and they hold their shape wonderfully.The cookies are like a chocolate shortbread, but next time I make them, I will be adding a little more confectioners sugar for a little sweetness...or maybe a tablespoon of white sugar.

    Adrienne Cennamo from Richmond, VA

    Although these light and delicious cookies would be great using any shape cookie cutters, it was nice to finally see a recipe geared toward Hanukkah. They're also easy to prepare. Thanks.

    Very good

    Lorena G from White Plains, NY

    I knew this recipe from a cookbook. If you are looking for a chocolatey shortbread type cookie, this is for you. However, I would try adding a little more sugar to make it a chunky. Thanks.
