Recipe Comments & Reviews

This is my husband's favorite cookie. I have been making it for a couple of years. I always make the icing and put it in a zip-lock baggie. I cut a tiny corner and drizzle the cookie in different diagonals. For Christmas, I divide the icing and tint it red and green. It looks very festive.
