We loved these cookies! I made the recipe exactly as-written, and they turned out absolutely delicious! I did add just a little touch extra milk to the glaze, because it made it a little easier for me to "drizzle" it. A note I will offer to other cookie bakers: When it says soften the butter...you must ONLY soften the butter. Take a lot of care not to melt the butter.
The best scenario would be to have had two cubes of butter sitting out on the counter at room temperature and ready to go. Being that isn't very likely, using a microwave you need to take care not to melt the butter. If you melt it, the cookies will be flat, as some others have said. I put my cubes in the microwave on 20% power for 1 minute. After it stopped, I opened the microwave, removed the butter checked it for softness, and determined more time was necessary. I put it in at 30% power for 45 seconds. That got it pretty close...but to get it just a touch closer, it put it back in at 20% power for 35 seconds. Perfection. ;) My cookies turned out awesome! ENJOY~
