Instructions

  • Mix until uniform. Ensure dough pulls away from sides of mixing bowl.
  • Shape into 2" balls. (I made only 1 dozen cookies from this recipe). Roll dough balls into granulated sugar.
  • Place on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes on the tray then finish cooling on wire rack. Cookies do become large and flat, but are not crisp.
  • Frosting: Mix until smooth and creamy. Add milk until desired spread consistency.
