Last Christmas my neighbor (Tonya) made these cookies for the cookie swap. I couldn’t stay away!! I had to make them this year. This recipe below includes the recipe for a cream cheese frosting. Tonya just used regular white frosting from a can. We made both ways this year and I have to say, I’m a fan of the white frosting, but you have your choice! Enjoy!
