Now, these cookies have kicked up a storm in the blogging circuit this Christmas. My previous attempt at making these cookies was not great but this batch was a runaway success. I used a basic sugar cookie recipe and incorporated some flavors for that extra zing and flavor. The result is i m fishing for stray bits of cookie in my pantry. My friends loved them and i was exultant to put a smile on someone s face with a box of cookies. Shall we begin heating up the oven, then?
