I'm so excited about these cookies! These were baked on a snow day, therefore kid-inspired. The recipe calls for Princess flavoring, which I've used before and found to be just okay. Turns out, this is the perfect recipe for it - the flavor was terrific!
The icing is confectioner's sugar, milk, and a bit of vanilla. I liked these best on the first day, they were pleasantly crunchy when just cooled (very animal-cracker-like.) By the next day, they were softer, but still yummy.
I used the mini Wilton Noah's Ark cutter set. I see lots of decorating possibilities with these - they'd be very cute as hearts with pink sprinkles or tiny gingerbread men. Mini cookies make me smile!
