    To Betty Cruz, I watched the show and did not see any rudeness from Lucinda. My husband was watching with me and we both thought they were having a good time. I record LSQ and have re-watched the show and still must disagree with you. Maxine

    I have not made the cookies yet, but I have a comment. I thought I liked Lucinda, but she was very rude to Martha Stewart's assistant cook today, as they were baking these cookies. She repeated sarcastic comments to her which I think made her very uncomfortable. Not Nice.....

    Definitely a keeper recipe. Kept all the original ingredients, but made them much smaller, in the shape of an awareness ribbon and got about 4 doz cookies. Used the icing, but being that these were for a breast cancer awareness luncheon, I tinted the icing pink. Needless to say, they were a hit. Thank you, Lucinda, and I DID give you all the credit for the recipe. ;-)
