I had a request for the recipe for these cookies. I haven't had a cookie this good in at least ten years. It's the frosting. You brown the butter before you mix it with the sugar and it makes it taste soooooo carmely delicious! I suggest you make a double batch of both cookies and frosting so that you'll have plenty.........of leftover frosting! That way you can eat it with your fingers to your hearts content!!
