Would make this again.
I've made these for years - I love how soft & creamy they are! I don't use frosting though. I just dip the fork in colored sugar (not flour) before I flatten the cookies. They look festive and are easier to store without frosting! 5 stars

Tint the frosting red or green and add mint extract. Perfect for your Christmas cookies platter. Yum!! 5 stars

Delicious and melty, however the estimated number of cookies is way off. Making 1-inch balls, I was only able to make about 18 cookies, not 36. Would also be delicious with a hint of lemon extract substituted for the vanilla. 5 stars

My Grandma always made these at holidays, but we roll in powdered sugar when fresh out of oven. 5 stars

I have baked these for several years now. Every year my sisters always ask for these cookies. I bake alot of cookies and candy for the holidays but these are the most requested ones. When I place the ball of dough on the cookie sheet I use my finger to make an imprint and when they are cooled, I put a little of the creme cheese icing in the indention. I also use red and green food coloring in my icing. 5 stars

I made these cookies and they really do melt in your mouth, I find that they are even more delectable than shortbread cookies. I added some crushed almonds to the recipe and after icing them with cream cheese icing I put a whole almond on each cookie ...mmmm good 5 stars

These cookies are aptly named! They are incredibly light and delicate and they really do just melt in your mouth. They are insanely easy to make! I didn't try them with the cream cheese frosting, but I believe that would be a nice enhancement. As I was eating them it also occurred to me that they would be nice dipped in chocolate. I had some freshly grated nutmeg left over from something else I just made, so I divided the dough in two and added the nutmeg to half the dough. It made a really nice flavor. I was considering making another batch, replacing the vanilla with rum, adding the nutmeg, and calling them Eggnog Melting Moments. 4 stars
