"This is a bit different than the other recipe on this site as it does not use buttermilk and has a lot less sugar. Found it in a Simple & Delicious magazine."

"These are truly a lovely cookie. Very low sweetness until you frost them, then they are glorious."
"These are great. Hubby loved them. His mother was a great baker and made a fantastic soft rolled cookie. One that is hard to make because the dough is so soft. But oh so delicious. So thankyou, these are so easy...and so good. The family will enjoy for years."
"A nice sugar cookie when you don't want to go to all the work of cut-outs. I flattened the dough slightly before baking on parchment paper. Will definitely make again; adding to my collection of favorites!!"
"They are soo good, made them without the icing and they are very tasty just as the recipe is. I also made them last week with splenda and smart balance butter substitute as the shortening and they came out great! Thanks for the post!"
"i only used the frosting and it was really good...mine always ends up w/more of a beige color though from that little bit of vanilla. is it just me? how does your look so white?"
"Delicious cookies! So simple to make and they have a wonderful flavor. I baked them at 400 degrees for nearly 10 minutes. I will shorten the time for baking to 8 minutes because they did get a little too brown on the bottom, but they still taste great. I used parchment paper for easy cleanup and a better cookie overall. I love the icing as well - the consistency is just right for spreading it on the cookies. I only got about 2 1/2 dozen, but that's probably because mine were slightly larger than 1 1/2 inch balls. By the way, Kittencal was right - these cookies do taste yummy even without icing. These will definitely be on my Christmas cookie list from now on. Thanks for sharing!"
"wonderful cookies, I just made the cookies without the frosting and baked them in a 350 degree convection oven to crisp up slightly, my DS likes to dip them in his coffee, I also added in 1 teaspoon almond extract, I will make again next time with the icing, thanks for sharing Mel!"
"Well, it's not the typical sugar cookie, that's for sure. The frosting is good and it is really what has made this cookie for us. It just wasn't our thing -sorry. I guess we are too used to the regular sugar cookies. Thanks for posting. It was great to try it out! Made for 123 Tag Game."
