You and your guests won't be able to have just one of these delicious, adorable, five-ingredient cookies. They also couldn't be easier to make. Since they take about 1 1/2 hours to bake, you can have them going in the oven while dinner is served, and they'll be ready for you just in time for dessert. Also, if you are comfortable using a pastry bag and tip, they will work like a charm for these cookies. Use a large star tip and pipe out 1 1/2-inch rosettes or whatever other designs you can come up with. The possibilities are endless!
