Rated 5 out of 5 by from The recipe was so easy. I have purchased these at bakeries and pay a lot for them. I am so glad to have this and feel they are very nice as gifts for any occasion. I am planning to make them for my nieces wedding next June using her colors and giving them as favors. Who wouldn't like cookies for a gift. I can't wait to hear how everyone likes them this holiday season. Thank you for all the wonderful recipes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made the Candy Thumbprints Cookies and they were delicious. I had a lot of compliments about them. I made them with white, pink, and Chocolate, They looked pretty together. You could also make them for Christmas and use red and green. You could make them for different occasions and use different colors. Not only are they good to eat but look pretty also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thumbprint cookies using Wilton melts OMG! These are SO good! And easy to make! I roll the dough balls in Christmas sugars/sprinkles before placing on cookie sheet, then coordinate colored melts to the sugar colors. They make a very festive cookie on your Christmas plate, and VERY delicious, bakery quality, imho.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These are great and so easy to make for different occasions depending on the color of the candy melts you use. Pink and white for baby showers, green and red for Christmas. Also, it is really fun to have others (even little ones) help you with the candy melts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Easy. My kids love to help and they love the cookies even with walnuts. They requested these for the teacher gifts we make. They help put in the candy melts. Be sure to do this right from the oven and caution them about the hot pan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These were a great hit at a baby shower, I hosted. I used gumdrops for the center. I made several different kinds of cookies (sugar, peanut butter, and snickerdoodle cookies).
