I've had this recipe longer than the friend that I got it from!!! This is a MUST every time there is a holiday or I'm asked to bring cookies for an event. My family devours them. They are very easy to make and it's a different recipe than any of the others I've seen with the same name. I sometimes have to add a little more cream to the dough if it appear too dry. We've made them with the frosting and without, dusting them with powdered sugar. Both ways are delicious!
