Notes

A few years ago I found this recipe in a Taste of Home magazine. The kids (and adults) love when I make them at Christmas.

My husband works for a pest control company, and I think everyone would love these....lol

I made these last night for my family. They looked absolutely adorable! And they tastes great! I recommend these for their ease in making and decorating. However, watch out this is a lot of cookie! Even my 4 year old couldn't eat one at one time.

sounds like it would be fun to make my grandchildren will enjoy making them and eating them
