7- Cook for 6-8 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.

Icing ingredients: 

1 c. Powdered Sugar

4 tsp. Milk

Add a little food coloring if you want!


1- Stir in bowl.

2- Let cookies cool and then spread or dribble icing over cookies.

This icing recipe makes the perfect homemade icing. Not too runny, not too stiff!


This recipe makes a great, not too sweet sugar cookie and you don’t have to chill the dough in advance! This recipe makes a lot of cookies too, so I love to use it for holidays. I can section off the dough, and everyone gets their own ball to roll, cut and decorate. Kids love it. The husband loves it. Try it!
