I remember these cookies from back in the 70's. It's always been a favorite..it's simple and the results are always a hit. They're especially pretty when you add red or green food coloring to frosting...very festive. Try them...you won't be sorry.

I made these one year for Christmas and our good friend, went nuts over these. His birthday just passed and I made them for him, again. I had to make them two days in a row. Everyone loved them and couldn't get enough. On the holidays add some coordinating sprinkles to the frosting to match the holiday. I added kisses to the top!
