This is my favorite cookie recipe. If you want to add frosting, I wrote a recipe for that too.

I wasn't impressed. The cookies were kind of hard after baking. I don't mean crisp either. I won't make again.

People cry of happiness when I make these cookies. Add a little bit more sugar and cut the frosting ingredients in half and you will have delicious cinnamon shortbread cookies.

I LOVED these cookies. They go good with the brown sugar frosting (http://cookie.allrecipes.com/AZ/BrwnSgrFrst.asp). Just dip them in the frosting and wha-la! YUMMY COOKIES....
