I've made this before, and the cookies are really delicious. I like to make a minor adjustment to the icing though. Instead of butter, I mix light cream cheese into the confetioner's sugar for the icing. This is also really good with mint extract added to it. I made a Valentine's batch by cutting the cookies in heart shapes and adding food coloring to make pink icing. So cute!

I love this recipe because it's so easy & gives you so much control. I rolled the cookies in powdered sugar before baking, & added 1/2 tsp of mint to the frosting. They turned out great! I do think you have to be careful what cake mix you use, as some are too salty.
