My all around favorite cookie of ALL TIME! Tips: I make the cookie dough and place it onto waxed paper, make into a log, and put it in the fridge for one hour... then I roll it into tsp size balls by hand (do not flatten), place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and then chill again for a bit. Then I bake for about 15 minutes... until golden. I let them cool a little while on the cookie sheet then I transfer them to a rack to cool. The frosting is EVERYTHING on this cookie! Pipe the frosting on with a piping bag and a large tip. I also use 2 TBS. of butter in mine. Sprinkles are nice too! Make sure to let the cookies sit overnight after frosted to let them cool... the frosting hardens a bit and helps hold this very fragile cookie together. EGG NOG VERSION: add 1/4 tsp. fresh grated nutmeg to the dough and 1/4 tsp if rum flavoring and another 1/4 tsp. of fresh nutmeg to the icing. YUMS!



I really enjoyed these cookies. To be honest, after I had made my first batch, I tasted one, and instantly began to make a new batch because I knew they'd be gone right away! I suggest that you don't bake them for only 12 minutes, I had to bake mine for at least 15, so that they are a golden brown on the bottom.



This is my family's favorite Christmas cookie! The only thing I do differently is use almond extract instead of vanilla. The taste is extraordinary! I also color the frosting pink and green for Christmas; they look beautiful on cookie trays!
