Great tasing and fun recipe! A big hit at the kids' school parties. Just make sure no classmates have peanut allergies. Teachers will usually not request treats if there is a student that does - they'll ask for money instead. The recommended decorations were a little pricey for that volume of cookies, so we used BC gel food colorings and a container of vanilla icing and piped it on and set them in the fridge for a few minutes to set before adding more icing. We used the glitter gel icings to make ornaments (dots), but I really wouldn't recommend that if you have to take them somewhere. They don't set like regular frosting, so you have to be extra careful not to let them slide. We also rolled some of the cookies in colored sugars mixed half and half with regular sugar to add variety. Again, lots of fun to decorate with the kids, and surprisingly little mess for a family of 7. Great taste, too. We ended up having to make an extra batch because they kept 'dissappearing.'
