Would make this again.
My mom found this recipe to switch up our Christmas cookies years back and we loved them! Iím having a rough time as this will be my first Christmas without her, but I am so thankful to have this recipe and to keep this tradition (and all the wonderful memories of Christmases before) alive. 5 stars
