This is not your traditional American cookie recipe, but that's why I like it. My daugter is Mexican and she helps me make these every year for her Adoption Day. We share them with her class and they all love them. And of course, the red & green colors make them great for Christmas. 4 stars

Would not make this again.
When I made these cookies they were very bland and even bad tasting. In my opinion the festive sugar even looks cheap and rediculous. I would never make these again. 1 star

Would not make this again.
These cookies are very festive and colorful looking, but I did not like the taste very much. You can taste the yeast in the cookies. To me they were ho-hum. 2 stars
