I haven't eaten these but I made them for Sam's state school class. The kiddos that could tell me said they were great.

Have a heart...cookie shapes to suit your fancy, bunnies, frogs or just plain round...'cause they will be eaten fast! A great gluten free recipe for children, tea parties, and special occasions like valentines or just any time at all. A cookie cutter recipe that you can make any shape you like.
