bethangel....you need new name as there is nothing angelic about you. These cookies are addictive! Maybe you should go to baking school
Best cookies ever! The trick is mostly in boiling the icing. The first time I made them, I just iced them and they were so-so. But when you boil the icing, WOW! Not only are these everyone's favorite Christmas cookies, they get even better with age and make the perfect cookie to ship across the country. I agree with other commenters that the icing is more of a cream color than white, but who cares? Not the folks gobbling down the cookies, that's for sure.
These cookies are good with or without icing!! Yum!
I first made these around 1996 and I enjoyed them then. Twenty years later and I am making them again. I am sure they will be as wonderful now as they were the first time. The dough is delicious LOL.

Cookies have to be place flat on the pan because they do not rise very much. I thought they were a bit dry and not chewy. By using brown sugar (I even used lite brown sugar) the frosting is not a creamy white color as in the photo. They are way too sweet. So sweet to the point of being a fail. I made these for a work party and ended up scrapping them due to embarrassment and ran to the store to get a brownie mix. I thought they were awful. Don't waste your time or money on these!
These are my husband's favorite cookies. I usually need to increase the frosting by half to have enough for all the cookies. They're delicious with or without frosting though.
I like these a lot, but I rarely get around to frosting them and they are still great!
I haven't even iced them yet, and they're amazing! Making these for Christmas, going to color the icing green and red.
I'm glad I have friends because if I couldn't have given away most of the batch, I would have eaten all the cookies. Plus, they stayed fresh for several days.
