I thought they were quite tasty, but I know that they may not appeal to everyone, since they do taste a bit different than the ones in the store… but they are pretty darn close for a homemade version – and they taste great either way, right?!
Note: the dough is VERY soft to work with. It’s good to keep the dough you aren’t rolling out in the refrigerator while you work with the rest of the dough. Store cookies in an airtight container so they stay soft!
Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
