They were very easy to make. The hardest part was getting the dough to the right thickness.

The first batch I made, the cookies were too thin, and I don’t think I cooked them long enough. They all broke 🙁

I couldn’t find small jelly beans, so I had to use regular ones. Other than that, you need to let them sit flat for a while for the icing to dry out a little. Once the icing is dry you can stack them gently in a pile and they won’t get too messed up. My guys loved them!
