“The frosting on a half-moon cookie is the most important part! The frosting should not be of icing consistency, but also not too thick. This recipe will give you just the right amount of frosting for the cookie Half Moon Cookies (White). This recipe is nearly identical to Kitten's recipe 89207, but since I'm changing the preparation instructions slightly to account for the 1/2 white 1/2 chocolate frosting, I am submitting it as a separate recipe. I am indebted to Kitten for coming up with the perfect consitency for the frosting. Thanks Kitten!”
