These are my favorite basic soft cookies—the old-fashioned touch of combining baking soda with liquid makes them very light, like puffy little butter cakes. This recipe is from Nancy Hubbard in Indiana, whose family eats cookies just as fast as she can bake them— and she bakes plenty. For slightly more “adult” cookies, replace 1 tablespoon of the milk in the icing with a tablespoon of brandy or rum.
