I made this recipe for Christmas & everyone just loved the cookies. I also put a homemade frosting on top of them & they were even better... Mix about 1 1/2 sticks of soften butter & about 3 cups of powdered sugar until creamy. Add a 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of vanilla & stir in some milk, about 1-3 tbs until desired texture. The frosting should taste creamy not powdery. Happy baking!!

AWFUL good! We also put a hershey kiss in the middle prior to baking! Those were good and even better when we unwrapped the Hershey Kiss first on the next batch!

This is a great recipe, it is easy and makes a lot of cookies. This is like a butter cookie but not as delicate. I made them for a party and they were a big hit. I will make them again, thanks!
