Absolutely wonderful. The final product comes out rather sweet but I found that the cookies had a tendency to crumble (as shortbread-type cookies do) if the frosting was too thick. Problem easily solved though by thinning the frosting. Definitely a keeper!
I love these cookies! My grandmother has made them for years, but only recently did I find out that her name for them is "maidenhead cookies"!... hahaha, still very irresistable!
Dry dough..Definately needs frosting
Awesome cookie. Soft and sweet.
