got this recipe from a wife of someone my husband works with. I see from the copy it is a taste of home recipe!! These are wonderful cookies. Moist and cake like. It calls for cream cheese frosting but I think if you don't have any cream cheese on hand just a butter cream frosting would be just as yummy!! Hope you like them!
