  3. Hi Dana! I love these pretty cookies – so much so that I picked them as my ROCKSTAR pick at the Creativity Unleashed link party! You’ll be featured tonight and be in the running to be our MEGA ROCKSTAR! Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us!!

  4. Hi I made the cherry vanilla meringue cookies the only problem I’m having is getting them off the tray. What should be used parchment, silpat or regular cookie sheet?

Leave me your lovely thoughts
