Hi Cathy,
May I know for chocolate cookie, how much cocoa powder did you add in? To make chocolate cookies, will there be any changes for the above recipes? Thank you for sharing.

Hi cathy,
Wow, another batch of very pretty cookies from you! This year I didnt manage to do many cookies, my cookies are always plain and undecorated, so I can only admire yours, always so nicely decorated! Here's wishing you a merry christmas and a happy new year, hope to see and learn more bakes from you in 2015 =)
