    Chef #939163's Note:

    Delicous little bites of butter cookie with yummy icing you can doctor up to suit your taste. I like almond and peppermint. I usually put the frosting into a piping bag and make swirls on the top.

      Beautiful, simple and delicious cookies. I was pleasantly surprised by how nicely they baked up, but I was not able to shape my dough so I just measured out a nice tbsp. of dough for each cookie. I made the glaze a bit runny and it hardened up nicely while being soft inside. I wasn't adventurous and used vanilla for the frosting. The sweetness of the frosting compliments the cookie perfectly which doesn't seem to be too sweet itself and they truly do just melt away with each bite. Lovely recipe. Thanks for sharing.
