“Found this in a Women's Magazine and had to make it the first chance I had. Goes together so easy and so cute, I've posted the recipe as directed but myself used pepper corns for eyes and buttons. Great for the holidays. Recipe states use a processor, but I just mixed up in my Kitchen Aid and think you could even just do it by hand. Cook Time is chilling time”
