  • Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto buttered baking sheets. Cook at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and cool on wire racks.

  • To Make the Icing: Heat 1/2 cup butter or margarine in a saucepan until it is light amber colored. Remove pan from heat, and stir in confectioners' sugar and the milk. I sometimes have to use more milk to get the icing smooth and creamy. Frost cookies.
