  • Chill dough until firm 15–30 min.
  • Roll to a 1/4‑inch thick­ness on floured sur­face.
  • Cut with 4 to 5‑inch cook­ie cut­ter.
  • Arrange on greased cook­ie sheet or one that is lined with parch­ment paper. I pre­fer parch­ment paper.
  • Bake for 5–7 min­utes. Mom’s oven is 5 min. mine is 7 min.
  • Cool cook­ies on cool­ing racks com­plete­ly then add icing.

This recipe makes about 1 1/2 Dozen Cook­ies.

Icing: 1 Cup Pow­dered Sug­ar, 2–3 Table­spoons Milk, 1 Cap-full of Vanil­la Extract

Direc­tions: Mix ingre­di­ents togeth­er using a fork. My icing is a glaze so it’s run­ny. If you want yours thick­er add a bit more pow­dered sug­ar. Before the icing is dry add sprin­kles if you want. Allow iced cook­ies to dry on cool­ing racks. Once dry you can sift pow­dered sug­ar over the cook­ies.
