I made these last year for christmas and they were amongst my favorite cookies. i felt the cookie and the icing complimented each other nicely. i am definitely making these again this year.
I made this recipe and the cookies are great, i love them, but the filling is too sweet for me. I had to throw out all the filling because i could not eat.
I made this for my friends' birthday. She was very, very happy with them.
These were very good, but just a little too sweet. I liked the consistency of them. I've made lots of Snickerdoodle recipes, from soft to crispy, from flat to rounded. These are a perfect mix of in-between. It's nice using the cinnamon butter and avoiding the rolling of dough balls into a cinnamon sugar mixture. The icing is maybe what makes these overly sweet. Good flavor of icing, but just a little too much for me. The kids love them though. I'm leaning more towards just the plain cookie.
