    it wasn't sweet enough so add about 4-5 tbs of sugar and the topping tasted of egg and wasn't a hit at all. the pastry wouldn't roll so we had to squeeze it into the cookie cutters if your making this omit the icing and use normal icing, add more sugar to the dough, and roll out straight away instead of cooling.  -  03 Aug 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
