This is another recipe from my late great hero, Mr. Food. I don't care for these cookies either from this recipe or from a bakery, but everyone raves about these cookies when I make them. I usually nuke the frosting for about 15 seconds to make it easier when applying it to the cookies. This is a very common cookie from the Jewish bakeries all over New York's boroughs.
