      Very soft and with a taste similar to shortbread, but not nearly as much work! The icing made far more than we needed and I made about a third of a batch. Were great without the icing too (and with my morning coffee). Thanks for sharing!

      Really easy to follow instructions. It was a very good cookie. I didn't feel like making icing so I used chocolate chips instead. My husband loved them. They are a bit on the sweet side with them so I do believe I will subtract about 1/2 cup of sugar otherwise they are wonderful cakey cookies. I am not great at making cookies and these are a hit!
