This is a great holiday cookie recipe. Moist, tender and sweet. You can cut back on the sugar and you will still get the perfect cookie. Light confectionery sugar and milk make the best frosting. Add a little food coloring or sprinkles if you like.
Kids love them, adults love them! These cookies have been a family favorite for many years. You can't eat one!!!!!!
