Cinnamon Stars
This was awful... Just aweful, Everything about it. I had a terrible time making the dough. The egg whites became thin and gooey, dough stuck to everything. I tried chilling the dough to make it easier to work with, which helped a little. Used the recommended star cookie cutter, but when the cookies baked they became all deformed. After baking they stuck to the parchment paper and broke into a million pieces. I literally threw away the whole batch, which killed me because of how much I spent on the ingredients! I would have ate the pieces if they tasted good, but I wasn't even satisfied with the taste. I will NEVER make these again, and I caution anyone who is contemplating making them! I have no idea why these have such good ratings and populatity!

Cream Cookies
This is a very basic recipe with basic, classic ingredients. The cookies were delicious. The best way to describe them is like small bites of homemade pie crust. I did not ice mine, but I did dip them in a larger-crystal sugar (Sugar in the Raw) before baking them. If you use quality ingredients you should love these. They are not for those who prefer a sweeter tasting cookie.

Easy OREO Truffles
I consider myself a pretty good baker. I rarely have difficulty with a recipe. But let me tell you - these were hard to make. Definitely tested my patience. I tried what some reviewers had said and froze the dough for a little while before rolling it. Even after that the dough was hard to roll out. Dipping the balls? Forget it! Chocolate everywhere, and they looked like they were made by a 5 year old. When I finally had some ready that appeared edible (maybe 1/2 of the batch), I decided to try one of the "rejects" I had put to the side. After all that trouble, the cookie was WAY too sweet. The rest of the family felt the same way. Yuck! The difficult time I had making these combined with the overly sweet taste make this recipe OFF the Christmas cookie list for next year! Just thought you all needed an honest review and a 'heads up' to anyone thinking of trying them. I'm not sure why this recipe has such high ratings.
