apart onto greased cookie sheet. Bake @ 350� for 8-10 minutes or

until golden brown. Cool. Combine frosting ingredients and frost

cookies. Makes 6-1/2 dozen.

Enjoy When we are grateful for the good we already have, we attract more good into our life. On the other hand, when we are ungrateful, we tend to shut ourselves off from the good we might otherwise experience. ~Sylvia
