These are tasty little cookies... made with a dough that is easy to handle.

The topping possibilities are endless....

If you choose to dip them in chocolate... try dipping half a cookie, making a stripe on top and add sprinkles, make drizzles..

Or just roll them in powdered sugar.....

This is dedicated to my friend JoAnne.....
