About

This is a fairly old recipe, so several things depend on sight and taste. They are amazing cookies if you don't let that deter you. Just remember to keep on eye on them baking and taste your frosting as you add ingredients. Because nobody likes a burnt cookie and, since you will be eating them, its a good idea to like your own frosting. :-) Anyway, enjoy!
