Best Ever- Spring cookies

I'm going to let you in on a little tip.....ok, more like a secret. My grandma's recipe book was given to me before she passed away (I begged her for it, and since I'm the only one in the family who cooks and bakes she ablidged) and I found the most amazing, tasty, fabulous recipe for cut out cookies.

Smoosh both sides of the mallows in the colored sugar and push them onto the skewers. Sit back and enjoy!
