Author Notes: These are my favorite cookies that I make at Christmas, and I have been making them for DECADES. You can ice them or not, its up to you. They look more festive iced, but either way they are very addictive and yummy . I just made a batch, I'm home alone, and I can't stop eating them! —kimbaddd
