All of the different cookies look so gorgeous in the gift box. This cookie dough tastes amazing too. It has a crispy bottom and a chewy top. They do spread some regardless of whether you chill it or not. The cookies tend to be thicker with things in them like chocolate chips, candies, and sprinkles. They are slightly thinner if you make them into thumbprints, topped with a chocolate, or plain so you can frost them.
