These cookies are the kind you can't stop eating. I froze mine as soon as they cooled so there would be some left for Christmas. The dough is sticky so make sure you put alot of Confectionery sugar on your hands when working with it. I put 1 tsp. of Almond extract and baked them at 375 degrees for 13 min. I sprinkled them, when still warm, with red and green sugar for the holidays and also mixed sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkled that on some. I am definitely making another batch before Christmas. I only made the ball cookies because the dough is hard to work with. I did try dipping some in chocolate but thought it took away from the flavor of the cookie. Thanks for a great recipe. 12/7/09 Just made them for this year, I was able to make the S shape this year(don't know why I couldn't do it last year) anyway, I made the S shapes put them on the cookie sheet and sprinkled some with green and red sugar before baking, I left some plain, baked and when cooled sprinkled with confectionery sugar. The rest I made into ball and rolled in a cinnamon/sugar mixture before baking. Love these cookies.
