I have made these before and they are great and easy to make. One tip I have is to use a spoon or your finger and push in the middle of the ball to make an indention to place the icing in.

Lovely cookies. They turned out so light, they really do melt in your mouth! I piped some of them into swirls - took a little longer, but looked lovely. Think I might use a cookie cutter next time instead of rolling them. Really yummy!
