Aunt Ione's Icebox Cookies

Rated as 3.5 out of 5 Stars

"Whenever we went to visit my Aunt Ione in south Georgia, her icebox cookies were our favorite treat. My mother later make these cookies, and I remember begging for a slice of the raw dough--I thought the unbaked cookies tasted just as great as baked!"

These were really good.I can't believe it

A little bland. I think more spices would help. Also, mine took a good 14 minutes instead of 10.
