What a wonderful little cookie! It's very delicate and does melt in your mouth. I used the icing on some and powdered sugar on others. Next time I will try drizzling melted dark chocolate on top - a definite keeper!

I made these at Christmas. My Aunt made something very much like this many years ago the name was the same. I remember icing was sandwich between the two domed shaped cookies, and the icing was always tinted pink. Great for baby or wedding shower cookie plate. Cream cheese adds a nice second flavor, and letting the cookies mellow for a week or two just makes them better.

I would recommend rolling the balls in half the size, more time consuming but then they are easier to eat. This is a great little cookie for bridal & baby showers.
