Always a big hit at our house. I think they are my favorite. Rolling the tops in sugar keeps the cookies from sticking to the fork or thumb when flattening. I use the thumbprint when I want to put a Hershey's kiss as a topper for special occasions. Either way they are sure to be a big hit with the family.
