Easy Decorating Glaze
- 1⁄2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 1⁄2-3 teaspoons water

- Mix brown sugar, butter and vanilla in large bowl. Work in flour, cinnamon and salt until dough holds together.
- Shape dough by scant tablespoonfuls around almonds to form football shapes. Place about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until set but not brown. Remove from cookie sheet. Cool completely.

Well, I doubled the recipe. Lot of football to watch today, and figured they would be all gone by game time. Anyway, outstanding flavor and taste. A 4 star rating because they were done in 10 minutes, and almost burnt, but great cookies.
