I looked for a recipe to duplicate a cookie from a local bakery and found this one. I roll them in chocolate sprinkles before baking and use almond extract in the frosting instead of vanilla (just my preference). My nephew can't get enough of these. Yum!

These are super yummy! The cookies alone are melt in your mouth buttery, I did not find the almond overpowering at all. The icing tasted a little too much like powdered sugar for my taste, and it was a bit thin, so I added a little more cocoa powder and a little instant vanilla pudding powder. Scrumptious!

Incredible! Super easy recipe with wonderful results. The cookies turned out light and crispy like shortbread, and the frosting was just the right amount of chocolate and just the right amount of sweetness. I did need to add an additional 1 TBSP of hot water to the frosting mix in order for it to get to the desired consistency, and I needed to bake the cookies an additional 5 - 8 minutes in order for them to get the golden brown edges. My 3 1/2 year old daughter helped with almost every step of the recipe, and we had a great time together. These are light, delicious cookies that I'll be proud to present as the dessert for my brother-in-law's birthday. Thanks for sharing!
