Frosted Cookies

I hate making cookies.  The measuring.  The perpetual watching and waiting.  I think it's the precise nature of making cookies that I rebel against.  Unfortunately, this directly clashes with the fact that my husband loves to eat cookies. 

I first saw these cookies (click for the recipe) a couple days ago and since I had a full container of Fage yogurt in the fridge, I thought I'd try them. 

They are supposed to be a home made version of the ones you can buy in the plastic containers in the grocery store.  Since I've never had those, I don't know how they compare.  They probably contain less ingredients than the store bought version and I had one reviewer (a passenger in our car on our way to soccer practice) tell me they tasted better than the grocery store version. 

Personally, I think the frosting is the best part.   But when isn't it? 

If you're feeling inspired, you could make these for St. Patrick's Day, but I think you'd be better served  by just putting a few drops of green food coloring in your beverage of choice. 


  1. I think they look great ...I have a whole cookbook of beautifully iced cookies that Im ignoring because icing them to a state of perfection just seems like too much work !

  2. I'm not a huge fan of making cookies or cakes either, for the same reasons. They look very green, perfect for St Patricks day.
