Helpful Tips:

I make these for each holiday, by adding food coloring to the frosting, as well as holiday decoration sprinkles and colored sugars. You can make a batch and freeze them until needed. Just take them out of freezer and frost when needed. They are also good without the frosting. This recipe is my family's favorite and well as my friends. I give them away as gifts at Christmas and people ask me to make them for their holiday parties. I start taking orders as early as Halloween for Christmas.
