Frosted Sugar Cookie Bites

I'm a part of a great book club. We meet at a local coffee shop called Book Bums. While discussing our latest book, we usually get some tasty drink and enjoy some of the baked goods that they sell. Several months ago, I tried their little bag of sugar cookie bites. They have a name, but I can't remember what it is. What I do know is that these little cookies are delicious. I have spent many hours trying to recreate them. I haven't quite perfected the frosting, but I think the cookies are pretty darn close! Here's my knock-off recipe:

Sugar Cookie Bites

1c. unsalted butter softened
2/3 c. sugar
1/3 c. powdered sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3 c. flour

1. Combine butter and sugars.
2. Add in eggs and vanilla and mix well.
3. Add flour, salt and baking soda and mix.
4. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop out dough into even balls and place on a cookie sheet.
5. Bake for 7-9 minutes at 350F
