I hated these, but my husband who likes desserts that aren't too sweet thought they were good. Maybe it's because I wasn't making a cookie that I wanted to taste frosting. Without the frosting these are VERY bland- I ended up putting bluberry jelly on mine and eating it like a biscuit. I added extra sugar, vanilla, and some lemon extract after reading the reviews that these tended on the bland side and they are still too bland. Maybe I should have used almond extract instead, but the recipe as written is so far from the sweet sugar cookies I enjoy that I can't even recommend this as a base recipe. If you like to have just a hint of sweetness or enjoy the taste of icing over the cookie flavor this recipe might work perfectly for you since they do have a great texture and consistancy.
