"This is a great cookie to make for any occasion. It is easy and delicious. I use a bit less flour, or a bit more butter. I also substituted the sugars for the splenda and splenda brown sugar mix. They came out perfect. The icing is fairly sweet, so less of the powdered sugar will do. Also, when you put them on the pan to bake, flatten them out with a floured fork. They will bake in the shape you leave them - so if it's a ball, you'll get a ball cookie. lol"
