I did not make stars - I used a different cookie cutter (snowflake) and made some really good cookies. I decorated them and sprinkled crystal sugar on top too. The taste was so good. The kids at school devoured them. VERY GOOD!

I made these cookies for my son's preschool class with Halloween shaped cookie cutters. Since he is allergic to eggs, this was the perfect recipe. They were a big hit with the children and teachers alike. I added a bit of extra sugar(both powdered and white), which enhanced the flavor. We had a lot of fun decorating the scary shapes! I can't wait to make these again for the next holiday.

Good cookies!

I liked these cookies, which were quick and easy to make. Try them with 1/2 c. chopped pecans added to the dough, which adds flavor and texture.

Nice chocolate flavor, but not quite sweet enough. The second time I made them, I sprinkled with sugar before baking and they were nicer. I think I will make them again, adding a bit more sugar to the recipe, and I'll drizzle them with white chocolate to decorate.
