A few notes:

  • These cookies could also be dropped by teaspoonful. If making drop cookies, decrease flour to 2 1/3 cups.
  • Eat them "as is" or sandwich two together with the wintergreen flavored icing
  • The key to tender cookies is to sift the confectioner's sugar just before measuring and then gently spoon it into your measuring cup. Also, do not over-stir when adding the flour.
