Thes really are melt in your mouth cookies!
I had to try these from a post by landeeseelandeedo and they were a hit!
I wasn't sure if my in laws would like them, but my husband insisted on bringing them up north. I acquiesced, on the grounds he would claim he made them. I tend to have anxiety when people eat my cooking and baking and it felt so freeing to have people eat my creation, like it, and give him the props. Utterly freeing to do this and I think it'll be my plan for future family gatherings (they can be harsh critics)!
Enough about that. These cookies are melt in your mouth with a cream cheese frosting. I'd suggest eating them with your morning coffee (thanks to Lynn for that suggestion)! You have to be careful because they can get crumbly so if you can bake them and serve them within the same day or two, they'll be at their finest.
Thanks Landeelu for a great cookie recipe!
