    1. 1
      Using a heavy-duty electric mixer on high speed, beat eggs until light and foamy, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

      Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place on ungreased baking sheets.
    5. 5
      Bake at 350° for 12 minutes.

      The tops of the cookies will not brown, but the bottoms should brown slightly.

      For glaze, combine milk and extracts in a large bowl.
    8. 8
      Add sugar; whisk until all lumps are dissolved and the glaze is smooth.

      I make these same cookies with only 1 exception I use 1 Cup of Vegtable Oil instead of the shortening...They are very good and for Christmas I usually use green and red jimmies just to make it look a little festive for the holidays. This recipe makes a very large batch so make sure your hungry :)

      I cut the recipe down to twenty four cookies and added one half teaspoon of grated lemon zest. Quick and easy to make and very yummy! Will be freezing until Christmas Eve. Added to this menu: Menu #24541 Thanks! cg

      I made these cookies for Christmas. They taste EXACTLY like what I was looking for. They are easy to make, fun to make with kids, look great on a plate and hold up well. I kept them for two weeks in a cookie tin. I am looking forward to making them again.
