"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."
