    Do these cookies really not call for eggs?

    Turned out great! I made the cookie part of the recipe exactly as stated; I already had extra frosting on hand so I used that.

    Rachie P,,,Made these recently,and enjoyed,very tasty.I did have to add a bit more butter to make dough a bit softer,perhaps ,as I have been told the Canadian flour milled a bit different than the American flour. Needed to watch closely the baking time so as not to brown bottoms too much...Will prepare and make again,glad you posted...Don

I am a married stay at home mom (former teacher) with two little girls. I enjoy cooking but love baking even more! (My husband certainly doesn't complain!) All the girls in my family and I all enjoy exchanging recipes and trying them out on our families. Taste of Home and Betty Crocker were my original kitchen/recipe resources - now I am a Zaar-aholic! I love trying out new recipes and my family does too! It brings me great joy and is a personal goal of mine to be able to offer a meal or a treat to any guest that comes in my door.
