      Great basic frosting and very versatile. I also loved the hint of lemon shining out through the sweetness. Thanks Ceezie!

      DH & I chg roles when it comes to frosting. I am usually the more adventurous one, but usually like cookies plain or lightly dusted w/powd sugar. He is usually the purist, but likes cookies frosted to satisfy his huge sweet-tooth. So he was the judge here & cannot keep his hands off these cookies! I admit I do like the hint of lemony goodness that is there but not strong. I used this icing to frost your Rooster Cookies (Sugar Cookies). Made for Spring PAC 2008 & thx for sharing your recipe w/us.
