simply nostalgic spring cookies

Enjoy the simple pleasures with these Simply Nostalgic Spring Cookies. Made using our tasty chocolate cookie dough, then decorated with royal icing, these cookies are simple to make, yet make a lovely display when arranged on a spring platter. Since these cookies are decorated with royal icing, they will need plenty of time to dry, so be sure to make these cookies a few days in advance for best results.
