    Oh my goodness, I just made a batch of these and they are as delicious as everyone has written! I'm going to make another half batch right now b/c I have a feeling people are going to want more than just one. And thank you @gml for two great suggestions: make a well and sprinkle salt. Brilliant!

    These cookies are delicious!! I have found that even after sifting the powdered sugar, there were clumps in the frosting. My solution is to pour the frosting through a strainer and that has worked.

    These cookies are a real crowd pleaser! I've made them multiple times but this year I made a triple batch and served them at my end-of-year university Grad Show. People were grabbing them three at a time! Thanks Martha!!!
