These are the best cookies. But, the icing is what makes them spectacular, so don’t leave it out!

2 cups all purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon evaporated milk
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Sift flour, baking powder, and salt and set aside. Cream butter and sugar. Add egg milk,and vanilla. Add flour mixture. Roll out to about 1/8 to1/4 inch thick, and cut into shapes. Bake for about 10 minutes.

2 cups confectioners sugar
1/4 stick butter
1/4 cup evaporated milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
A few drops of food coloring if you want a color besides white. Mix all together. Brush on cookies. It depends on how thick you want your icing, you can add more evaporated milk for thinner icing, or more powdered sugar for thicker icing. It takes a few hours for the icing to harden.
