How to make it

  • Remove cookies from baking sheets and allow to cool completely before frosting and decorating.
  • To prepare frosting, mix all ingredients together and beat until smooth and spreadable, adding more milk if needed for desired consistency; may add food coloring, if desired.
  • Frost and decorate cookies.
  • Recipe makes 4 to 4½ dozen thin cookies, or 3 dozen thicker cookies.
