A friend of my husband sent some of these cookies to us and I just had to have the recipe. They are so good and easy to make.

Frosting is just some powder sugar mixed with little milk. Sprinkles can be added if desired.

Substitute vanilla extract with almond extract. Or do a half and half with each extract for a different taste.
