Personal Notes:
This recipe is easy to multiply and I recommend it; I usually Quadruple it. The cookies freeze well, the dough freezes well, but I recommend freezing before frosting. For those that do not like nuts or coconut, the cookies can be made without and just frost. A family Holiday Cookie favorite shared with us by Ida Mae Varga in the 70s.
