Flavor-of-the-Month…Cookies

I’d have to agree with Bridget at Bake at 350 
the flavor of December is most certainly cookies.
She makes the prettiest cookie.
 Be sure to check out all her baked goods.
I am linking up with my favorite cookie recipe.
I get asked all the time if my cookies are sugar cookies.
They are not
I actually make an Italian cookie,
 it’s not too sweet but the icing tops it off just perfectly.
Italian cookies
5eggs
1 1/2cups butter melted and cooled (10 minutes)
5 cups flour
1 ¾ sugar
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla
In medium bowl whisk eggs and melted butter.
In large bowl stir together flour, sugar and baking powder, make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the egg mixture then vanilla.  Mix until shiny. About 2 minutes. Cover bowl with waxed paper and let the dough stand at room temperature for 20 minutes
Heat oven to 350 degrees roll out dough with flour and cut with cookie cutter. Bake 12 minutes
Makes at least 5 dozen (3inch) cookies.
Let cookies completely cool before icing.
Icing
2 cups confectioners’ (powdered) sugar
4 Tablespoons milk
1 Tablespoon corn syrup
In small bowl mix together until smooth add more milk if too thick or confectioners’ sugar if too thin.
Add food coloring and mix well.
Let icing set before storing.
My favorite cookie I baked this month were these red mittens.
I just love cookies!
Happy Baking!
&
Happy New Year!

    Cute cookies! Recipe looks good too; I'll have to give them a try. Looks like they hold their shape very well; do you chill the dough at all?
