“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.” - by Gwen Brown

"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!!!..." See more"
"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..." See more well for us. Left them for exactly 10 minutes."
