This cookie is not for cutting into shapes or pretty frosting this recipe is just a amazing melt in your mouth cookie that you put sprinkles on. I sometimes don't have time to make the cut out sugar cookies because well they do take a lot of time and with 3 kids and Christmas and add in every day life sometimes this cookie is what makes it on the plate and it is a crowd pleaser. Just add some sprinkles and you are good to go.
This is also week 2 for our cookie tray!
