Recently, for a "black & white" themed youth event at my church, I made these bad boys. They are a substantial cookie...guests will likely only eat one. The only things I would change about this recipe are:
* cut the cooking time in half...at least at my altitude. Hard cookies are no good in my book.
* add a little lemon zest to the cookie dough
Since I recently banned corn syrup (and anything containing corn syrup) from the house, I simply omitted it from the icing recipe. I thought the icing turned out just fine without the syrup. Also, I found it interesting that boiling water makes icing so much easier to smooth out. That was a great little tip...just in time for those iced sugar cookies so prevalent around the holidays.
P.S. I know many people are picky about their iced sugar cookie preferences, but in my opinion Kneaders makes the best version around.
