These are great cookies! I made them for a holiday party this past weekend and they were a huge hit! Few edits I made to my cookies…I chilled the dough for 30 mins before scooping out onto the pan. They were waaaaay too delicate and sticky to handle without chilling.

I also used some almond extract in the icing instead of the Vanilla (my vanilla spilled all over my stove right as I was about to grab it for the icing) and still turned out great!
