I've been making this recipe for about 3 or 4 years now with one exception. Instead of making a glaze, I allow the cookies to cool then roll them in powdered sugar, only because the glaze is messy and takes too much time to apply and let cool. I can never make enough to keep on the plate!!



The bomb.. awesome cookie. Texture wise and taste wise. I used real rum instead of extract and topped with some walnuts



Such delicious, light, airy cookies! Next time I'll roll the cookie dough in powdered sugar before I bake...I love sweet cookies! Everyone who tried these loved them. So easy to make-- not many ingredients.
