These were really good. My 6 year old daughter loved helping me bake these for her grandpa because she LOVES pink. They were tasty, and I think they'd also be perfect for a "it's a girl" baby shower.

These cookies are delicious! I love the light and fluffy texture. I added some white chocolate chips when I made them, which tasted really good too!

I prepared this recipe and my family enjoyed it. However, I rolled the cookies in confectioners sugar which makes them absolutely perfect!

Light and tasty- easy to make. Perfect Valentine's Day treat. I made two batches and sent them out to the college kids in the family.

One of my neighbors had a baby shower for another neighbor and all attending helped with the food. I took a plate of these; we knew it was going to be a baby girl. All the ladies wanted the recipe.
