Five stars to the cookie, two to the icing. To the person who asked for a better icing recipe, I have one that I use on ALL cookies. To the 4 cups of conf sugar, add 2 heaping Tbl. of "Just Whites", a powdered egg white that you can find in the baking aisle of your supermarket. Add enough lemon juice (not extract) to make a thick paint-like consistency (not icing thick!) Dip each cookie in the mixture and allow to dry, about 1/2 hour. Icing will harden in a thin glaze. You can also use water or milk instead of lemon juice, as well as food coloring or other flavoring. When decorating sugar cookies that are cut w/cookie cutters, you can apply this icing more precisely with a small paint brush. (If you're going to further decorate with sugar or sprinkles, do it before it dries.) When they harden, you can stack them without the icing smearing all over. Enjoy!!
