This recipe has always been a part of my family since I was a little kid. My Grandma used to make these frosting and cookies all the time! I remember every Christmas morning. I would wake up to a very luscious smell coming out of the kitchen. I was always excited to go downstairs to check if she was baking this. I was right all the time! I learned a lot from my Grandma including this awesome recipe. I am so grateful to her for this because now, I get to share it with you as well. I figured, everyone should taste how delicious these cookies and frosting are! As perfect as this recipe already is, feel free to add more ingredients if you prefer. I am sure that you can do a lot to make this even better! By the way, make sure to let your kids helo you when you are decorating cookies. It will be a great bonding experience! I always let my kids help me with this. It’s nice to let them practice their imagination by designing food! Anyway, enough with the long introduction. It is time to go to your kitchen and start prepping. Have a beautiful day, friends, and I hope you are all well today. Enjoy!
