“These are SO good:) And rich, as far as cookies go, but I still find it easy to put away more than my fair share of these! I found this in my grandmother's collection, so that tells me that these have been pleasing hungry snackers for some time! My son absolutely LOVES these:)”

  1. COOKIES: In a large bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar until fluffy.
  2. Add the egg yolk; blend well.
  3. Add the flour; mix well.
  4. If necessary, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill about 15 minutes for easier handling.
  5. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  6. Shape dough into 1" balls; place 2" apart on ungreased or parchment-lined cookie sheets.
  7. With a fork dipped in flour, flatten each cookie in one direction to a 1 1/2" round.
  8. Bake for 10-14 minutes or until light golden brown.
  9. Cool for 1 minute on the sheets; transfer cookies to wire racks and cool completely.

  11. Remove pan from heat; stir in the remaining frosting ingredients, adding enough milk for desired spreading consistency; blend until smooth.
