Dough was completely impossible to transfer to cookie sheet once cut out so I had to roll it out on the cookie sheet on top of parchment paper and just remove the excess dough from around the shapes cut. The cookies themselves were dull. If you're craving something sweet they really don't satisfy, until you put the icing on, but I found the icing to be too sweet and not in a good way. Next time I'll definitely be putting more flavouring in the icing, maybe a little extra sugar in the sugar cookies. Though there are certain variables; I halved the recipe, used almond milk (because that's all I have), used becel margarine instead of actual butter or shortening (again all I had-end of the month finance issues). I figured the almond milk would give it a nice nutty taste and it did but the blandness of the cookie itself even still was overwhelming. Same goes for the icing, could taste a hint of almond and vanilla but it had a weird aftertaste. They're edible though, just not something I'd make again to give as an anniversary gift :(
