Sugar Cookie Icing
Love the way this turned out. However, do NOT add more corn syrup. Add more milk a little at a time to get the desired consistency. NOT corn syrup!

Chocolate Thumbprints II
I made mine bigger than necessary. They spread out quite a bit when they cooked. Skipped the egg. Sounded like too much work for no reason I could figure. Someone says these aren't chocolaty enough, but I found them to be very chocolaty. Rolled them in red and green sugar and they turned out pretty for Christmas.

Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread
Wow. These are amazing, and pretty easy to make. We sprinkled with colored sugars. Important to bake at 350, I think instead of 375, and you'll have to check often because they go from not done to done in a short period of time. How many minutes it takes depends on the pan, really. I used two different pans. In one pan it took 15, and the other it took only 10. Just keep an eye on those edges and take out as soon as they start to turn brown and you'll be fine. Also, whip that butter a LONG time. I think I let it go maybe 15 minutes on high. Once I added the other ingredients I think I let it go on high about 5 minutes after the initial minute on low. Everyone loved them.
