“My mother made these all year round, she would just change the color of sugar in which they were dipped. Consider putting a small amount of powdered drink mix (e.g.. Kool-Aid crystals) in white sugar to get different colors, and a little flavor. (Don't omit the sugar or the flavor will be too strong. )”

These cookies were just ok for me. I will say that it was very easy to make and the ingredients are pretty much always on hand, however I like a "cookie" taste and not a "cake-y" taste. If you like more of the cake texture then these are for you.



I took the dough and wrapped it around a Hershey kiss. I put the dough about half way up. Its perfect for that.



This is a great recipe! I added 1 pkg of Lemon Pudding and a 1 tsp of real Lemon Juice and Voila! Great cookies! Oh yeah, sprinkled them with powdered sgar too!
