    Diana #2's Note:

    This makes a wonderful addition to the cookie tray. The colours are beautiful set against the white of the shortbread. Reminds me of coloured Christmas lights glowing through the snow. These also freeze well. Sprinkle with icing sugar after you take them from the freezer.

      Enjoyed making these little goodies, AND willl be making them again several times for the up-coming holidays ~ Even have the recipe included in my Holiday Gift Ideas cookbook!
