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!

Very good cookies, soft and a good density. I made 1/3 recipe for the frosting and it was plenty. We decorated these for Christmas. Thanks!

Nice flavor and texture, but not quite sweet enough. I think I'll try adding more sugar next time.

These cookies were really good and, like others said, not too sweet. They are very soft. They remind me of these Italian cookies that I make for Christmas every year except I put almond and anise extract in them.

I find this a very simple and delicious cookie.My son requested I not add frosting so instead I addedchocholate chips. Either way its good.For someone who is looking for a soft, cake like cookie that is not very sweet than this is the right recipe for you.

My ulta picky hubby proclaimed that these are better than Lofthouse Cookies!!! That is high praise, indeed. Very easy to mix up and bake. I have added this recipe to my favorites collection. Thanks!!
