  1. Blend confectioners' sugar, salt and vanilla. Add just enough water to make frosting easy to spread.
  2. Divide frosting into 2 small bowls. Add 2 drops of orange food coloring to one bowl and 2 drops of green food coloring to the other bowl. Mix each until the colors are even.
  3. Frost 1 inch of the left side of each Irish Flag Cookie with the green frosting and 1 inch of the right side of the cookies with the orange frosting, leaving the middle inch unfrosted.

I thought it was gret. You must not not not use generic powered sugar. You have to spring for the pure sugar cane, as it doesn't contain corn starch or something. It really makes a difference.
