My mother used to make these cookies, they are my all time favorite. She usually frosted them with a white icing. I made them for my children but they usually didn't last long enough to get frosted. Now I make them for my 14 month old granddaughter. They are so soft and so good! I usually double the recipe.

Got raves on these lovely "cakey" cookies. They stay soft & taste luscious. Recipe hint: 400F too high...try 350F. Also, great idea to double batch! They disappear WAY too fast!!!

Quick and Easy to make. NEEDS ICING though to make it just a bit sweeter!

We tried these for the first time today and they were fast, easy and very yummy. We skipped the icing and liked the *Not too sweet* taste. We may try icing them next time.They are so soft! 400F worked well for us. Left them for exactly 10 minutes.
