"Delicious! Made these for my hubby on Valentines Day. Like most of the other comments said, it seemed a little crazy to buy a can of frosting after taking the time to make homeade cookies, so I used a cream cheese recipe I like from another cookie recipe. I put a Hershey's kiss on top of each cookie!"

"The Cream Cheese frosting is easy to make from scratch. Use ¼ cup softened butter, 4 ounces of softened cream cheese, ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, 2 cups confectioner's sugar. Mix the butter with the cream cheese and the vanilla extract until it is smooth. Add the confectioner's sugar in half-cup increments until the frosting is of proper spreading consistency. (You'll use all, or almost all, of the sugar.) Give the remaining frosting in bowl to your favorite person."

"I was looking for something different and special for Valentine cookies and this is IT. I made my own frosting and sprinkled Wilton's special hearts mix on them and they are beautiful . And yummy. Thanks for the recipe and your great timing. I hate making cut out cookies and this was so easy. Thank you , thank you, thank you."

"Great cake-like texture and very easy to make. I skipped the canned frosting. Why go to the trouble of making cookies from scratch and then cutting corners on the frosting? A simple cream cheese/butter/powdered sugar frosting worked perfectly."

"These are really delicious. I only had 1 oz. of unsweetened chocolate, so made up the rest with semisweet and it wasn't too sweet. I used my 2 tsp. cookie scoop and just mounded the dough a little to get it close to 1 Tbsp. and baked for 6 minutes on some, 7 on others. We liked the 6 minute ones better because they were so moist inside! I made homemade cream cheese frosting to top them."

"Made these cookies for a pot luck and had rave reviews from everyone who tried them. The only thing I did differently was to add a bit more flour because the batter seemed a little loose. Could have been the weather that day. Regardless I will make these again and again"
