Top Review by HokiesMom

Annacia dear - you have a truly wonderful cookie recipe here! I took some (not all of course) to work to share and everyone is raving about these gems. They are a firm/crisp cookie in the end which makes it a fantastic dunking cookie for those coffee addicts like me. I tried one warm from the oven and it immediately reminded me of a snickerdoodle without all the sweetness but then you put that glaze on them and boy does that take it over the top! Don't skip that glaze! Found and made for Rookie Tag Game. Thanks for a keeper!
