Recipe by Kim127

I made this at Christmas last year and they were a big hit, especially with me and my mom. The frosting is a must.

These cookies are delicious! I didn't have any parchment paper, so I baked them on greased cookie sheets, and they still turned out moist and puffy! They were great even without the frosting, although I agree that it's a must, because with it they were spectacular! I think this will become a new family favorite!
