Very yummy! I only rolled in white sugar and added a drop of almond extract to the dough. Recipe not well-written and did not make 6 dozen, only about 2 1/2 dozen.

Very yummy cookies! I used the coffee icing also found on this website and the two combined made a delicious treat. Not sure if I will have any left to share with the family. :)
