These were just too cake like for my personal taste and not sweet enough. I also made the icing a little too thin, which didn't add anything to the flavor. I guess I prefer a chewier cookie. My family didn't really care for them either, in fact most of them were left untouched. Sorry Kirby, just wasn't what I was looking for.
This is just the recipe I was looking for, exactly like the ones my mom use to make. I did use all butter and they turned out wonderful. Wonderfully moist and not overly sweet.
