I always make sugar cookies, and end up eating 3/4 of them! So I'm trying to hold off on baking at least for a little while.. we'll see how long I make it! :)
These look so yummy, I'll have to give them a try. Do you use a cookie press?
Mmm, I love baking!! I wish I had a cookie right now! :)

I made the Russian Tea Cakes for my hubby's work Christmas party last night, along with Rocky Road fudge and iced sugar cookies.. they were a huge hit! Thank you for the idea, my oldest LOVES them -- new favorite! :)

They ARE pretty awesome, aren't they?? ;) Glad you found a new favorite. Although finding new cookie favorites can be dangerous to the physique!
