    Thanks for checking out my blog. I noticed your recipe calls for letting the cookies cool *completely* but my experience with cookies is that they do best if I remove them to a plate when they are still slightly warm. Of course, with the parchment paper, that’s not so much of an issue. You can just move the whole batch off the cookie sheet by pulling the paper & lay down a fresh sheet. Also, for those who want the cookies to be just a touch healthier, you can usually change to whole wheat flour without changing anything else. With the green coloring, people probably won’t even notice. Texture may be slightly larger grain depending on the flour.

  18. Very festive and pretty cookies.

  19. Happy New Year, thanks for the like. The cookies look tasty.
