The recipe is a family favorite to make each year for Christmas because the cookies aren't too doughy, but are easy to handle for big and little fingers to decorate. I find that it's easier to ...

THESE WERE DELICIOUS! MOST DEFINATELY EASIER TO WORK WITH WHEN THE BATTER IS COOLED! I ADDED A LITTLE CINN AND EXTRA SUGAR MMM! I WILL BE MAKING THESE FROM NOW ON!
