Cool story for the cookies. The cookies were relatively simple to make. My family rated them as good- not great- I think the taste of margarine which we rarely use may have been part of the reason. So that may just be a personal preference. They also did not age well- they should be eaten within a couple days I felt. They came out beautiful in appearance and had a different look from other cookies I made this holiday. Thanks for sharing.
