Notes:
  • This recipe yield me 30 plus cookies. But it depends on the size of cookies you decide to make.
  • If the dough is sticky, you can add little more flour to make it stiff enough to roll.
  • Icing should be thick enough to hold its shape. If your icing is runny, add little more icing sugar to make it thicker and to prevent flowing.
  • Do not over bake cookies because it will become harder.
  • Do not crowd the baking sheet, cookies should have enough space to spread so leave atleast 2 inch space between cookies.
  • You can store these cookies in an airtight container for 1-2 weeks at room temperature.
