    Cookie was very tasty and not too difficult to make. I made extra icing and dipped the cookies instead of spooning the icing on.

    Delicious cookie but getting the white chocolate on them is a bit of a task. This last time I made them I used a 1/2 inch paintbrush and when I added the chocolate the cookies were still quite warm to aid in spreading it. I made them into ghosts for my sons Pre-K class instead of mummies.
