Mennonite Soft White Cookies

A sugar cookie that is not too sweet, but deliciously soft! I was served cookies like these by a Mennonite couple, and searched desperately for the recipe until I found this one on a Mennonite cooking website! They've been a big hit wherever I've taken them, and they're a family favourite! I've modified the recipe to have coconut on top, like they were first served to me. If necessary, add an extra 1/4-1/2 cup of flour to keep the dough from being too sticky, and if you don't have buttermilk, use 1 cup milk + 1 tsp. vinegar and let stand for 5 minutes before use. The measurements for the icing are approximate, as I don't usually measure the amounts exactly and they aren't given on the recipe site; make more if you need/like more! Enjoy!
