Wow, beautiful cookies Susie. The dough was amazing to work with. I made the cookies into shapes of bears, some thin, some thick. Both were awesome, great flavor and the textures were wonderful, the thin cookies were crisp and crunchie while the thicker ones were soft and tender. The glaze was easy to work with and had a nice flavor. All I did was dip them into the glaze and let the excess drip off, then decorated them with colorful little sprinkles. Thank you so much for sharing a recipe that I will be making with my granddaughter soon. She is going to love these. The neighborhood kids sure did.

These were excellent cookies. I'll make this recipe again whenever I want cut-out sugar cookies. They are light, fluffy and positively delicious cookies, and the icing has the perfect level of sweetness that complements the actual cookie. And I liked that the icing hardened just enough to let me stack them without messing up the design of the cookie below. I made them for our family Christmas party, and I cut them in festive shapes of stockings and stars and I decorated each with Christmas sprinkles. The first batch was a little difficult to remove from the baking sheet, so I gave each baking sheet a very light spray of butter flavor non-stick cooking spray, and I had no problems after that. Thanks for the recipe, Susie D.

We had a lot of fun painting these cookies.
I added some food coloring to the glaze and I found out that for me it was easy to dip the surface to decorate in the glaze and removing the excess with a soft brush. I used some sugar pearls for decoration.
They turned out not only beautiful, but delicious too.
This recipe will used next year again!
Thanks a lot!
