"This recipe is great for first time cookie makers and kindergartners. They are easy and lots of fun. The children in my classes have never messed up a batch of these cookies in the fourteen years I've been teaching kindergarten, and neither have my four adorable children. You can use whole wheat flour in place of the all-purpose flour, if you wish." — by Wendy Mmm Gibson
