Hello parshpearl and welcome to CC. NFSC stands for No Fail Sugar Cookie, it is a really good recipe. Here is the link:
I prefer to use MMF, marshmallow fondant for my icing. It is a rolled icing, fairly easy to make and use. Here is the link for my favorite recipe, Rhonda's Ultimate MMF:
Others on this site use either thinned royal icing or an adaptation of it for their cookies. Maybe someone who uses this method can help with that.
If you want to try the cookies with MMF, feel free to PM me with questions.

here's the link to the recipe on this site.
How do these cookies freeze? Any tips would be appreciated.
emcatt - As I said, I do these cookies with MMF as the icing. I completely decorate them, then freeze. You can either bag them individually, if that is what you are going to do, or layer them in wax paper. Put them in an air tight container and freeze. Thaw them on the counter in the container. They will be just as fresh and look as good as when you put them in. I have frozen them for up to three weeks. Have even taken them by car from FL to OH after freezing, so they travel pretty well too.
