Recipe Notes

  • I prefer using my KitchenAid for combining all the ingredients, but you can certainly do this by hand as well.
  • This recipe makes approximately 20 cookies, but the specific yield will depend on the size of your cookie cutters.  Smaller cookie cutters = more cookies; larger cookie cutters = fewer cookies.
