I make these every Christmas. The only thing I do differently is to sprinkle a bit of coconut on top after icing.

I made these for Pick a Chef Fall 2005. I really liked the simplicity of the cookie recipe and the taste was really good too. I think next time I will put the frosting in a ziploc bag, cut off the corner, and then drizzle the icing over the cookies rather than frosting each one which was a bit tedious. Thanks for sharing :)

I've made this every christmas for about 20 years. It is simply wonderful and not and overly sweet cookie - very cakelike.
