    Love these and your photos are great. I have a peanut allergic kid, but still pinning and thinking I could switch up the cookie to maybe a snickerdoodle and duplicate. #SITSsharefest.

    These are adorable! I’m trying to figure out if I can incorporate them to the top of cupcakes….that wouldn’t be too much sugar right? lol, I’ve signed up for cupcakes for our church party, but I want to make these instead. Thanks for sharing on Weekend Bites
