These cookies are delicious! I added alittle extra vanilla because I love vanilla. I used the receipe for the cookies at Easter so instead of making hearts I cut out shapes of Easter bunnies, etc. I gave them out as gifts to relatives and received alot of compliments. I'm going to do the same for this Christmas. The sugar glaze is good too, but does add alittle extra sweetness so I made some plain. I also suggest giving yourself extra time because it took me longer than the time it says and depending on how creative you get with the decorating it can take a while as well. I made the cookies one day and did the decorating the next day. The sugar glaze needs a little time to dry before you put them on a cookie tray because otherwise it will stick to other cookies. I definitely recommend this recipe though!
