As you say, a wonderful cookie that can be enjoyed year-round! Most of the time I don't seem to frost the cookies I make, but the combo of this frosting & the chocolate cookie is a big hit! Most of them, this time around, were shared at a weekly meeting we attend, but believe me, I'll be making these again & again! Thanks for sharing a great keeper of a recipe!
