"The icing hardens nicely for stacking cookies in a container for storage."

"All in all, a good recipe. I do think the cookies need a bit of the icing to improve their flavor, but don't get the icing too thick, as it is very sweet. The word "drizzled" in the recipe description is completely misleading; the photo of the icing is much more accurate."

"Wonderful! The only thing I might change would be to add raisins, but great without."

"My daughter has made these cookies without the pecans for the last 4 or 5 years. She has won blue ribbons at the fair 2 years with them . I prefer them with the pecans but she doesn't like nuts. They are softer if you frost them soon after they are baked but dryer the next day, then frost them. Put a few grains of salt in the icing to offset the sweetness. great recipe. we make at least 15 dozen every Christmas!"

"These recipes were a hit as favors for friends who came to my November birthday dinner. Mindful of the "too sweet" charges leveled against these cookies, I simply eliminated the white sugar and made the glaze for presentation. I plan to make them again for Thanksgiving."

"I have made these cookies every year since I found the recipe in Taste of Home magazine.. probably 4 years ago? I have never made the icing with them and some times leave the nuts out, always make a double batch makes tons of cookies hubby takes them to work and leaves them in the break room they are always gone in 30 min. he complains because he didn't even get any one time.. he now takes some out for himself."
