I made these the first time for my daughter’s 2nd birthday party. And to my surprise they were a bit hit. Since my little girl loves animals so, we had Zoo theme for her birthday, and i made these little ones look like rats hehe wish i could make their tails
But they are not as difficult as they sound and as their names says, they just melt into your mouth, they are a must. Do try ‘em. It’s one of those fool proof ones
Another important thing about these cookies is that they can be stored for about 3 weeks in an air tight container. I love making them, because they are quick and easy and at the same time can be stored for future use. Ain’t that great or what?
Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
