I made these yesterday and they are sooo good!!! I think next time I might add about 1/4 tsp more milk in the frosting to spread a bit easier but overall they are great!!!

These are great for Xmas cookie trays.  I finely crush some candy canes and roll the sides of the cookie sandwiches in them, so they stick to the edges of the filling--looks really festive for the holidays!

I LOVE this recipe. These cookies are awesome! I always bring a big plate as a dessert for new moms. I have to give them to someone or I will eat all of them. So yummy!
