Okay, guys. Go to your refrigerator, take out 2 cups of butter (I know! That's a lot of butter!) and get it to start the softening process. You're gonna want to make these... quickly.
My kids all used the exact same adjective. At different times. "Amazing." I thought that was pretty much amazing, too.
If you can dare to not taste the dough... all the power to you. Just beware that once you DO taste it, you won't be able to stop with one spoon full.
They were a little more time consuming than my most baked cookie. But, SO worth every minute.
The recipe makes quite a bit. So I popped half into the freezer for a later date.
I also played around with the size. The size I was happiest with was making the balls about the size of a small brussel sprout.
You need to overemphasize the shaping part. Really get in there and squeeze your peanut together.
And get ready to have a batch of truly amazing cookies, that won't last long.here. I only made half of the icing since I froze half of the dough.
I'll be back tomorrow with the winner of Sew Red.
