I made these for a cinco de mayo party. The kids really loved them. Use unsalted butter and be careful not to use to much flour. Read More

Mencanto esta receta! They were sooooooo yummy!! I didnt have sprinkles so I used my food processor and used candy instead. It was really good! I even made ones that were red for Valentines day to give them more color. They reminded me of the cookies my abuelita used to make and I cant wait to be able to make them for her. Thank you for putting this recipe up.Me hizo recordar los dias que pasaba haciendo galletas con mi abuelita. Thanks again!!!!!!!!Oh I did add a little bit more vanilla though. Read More

An excellent tasting simple cookie recipe. I read prior reviews and wonder if those that had "sticky" dough used the entire egg and not just the yolk. My dough turned out perfectly and was easy to manage. I also found it was easiest instead of using your thumb form the dough into a 1-inch ball flatten down slightly with palm of hand and insert something round such as a rounded end of a plastic spoon to make the hole in the center. Sprinkled with multi-colored bead candies these cookies were so cute and good! Read More

I needed to make for my daughter's spanish class. No troubles instead of rolling balls and using a spoon I rolled it lengthwise and formed a circle worked great and kept the center open. Read More

These tasted pretty well. It just didn't have that much flavor. I would recommend more vanilla and about a fourth of a cup more flour because the dough was too sticky to work with. Read More
