Crazy Face Cookies Recipe

Thanks to everyone who has been asking for the recipe to the crazy face cookies! I had a great time sharing them with you.

4 sticks unsalted butter
2 c sugar
2 eggs
6 c all purpose flour
2 t baking powder
2 T milk
2 t vanilla extract

Cream the butter & sugar. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract. Combine dry ingredients, then blend into wet mixture. Chill for a couple of hours. Preheat oven to 400. Roll out cookie dough, about 1/4" to 1/8" thick. Cut shapes with cookie cutter. Bake until edges are lightly brown and center is set.

About 4 c powdered sugar
2 T butter
1 t lemon extract
1 t vanilla extract
just enough milk to make consistency of yogurt

Mix all ingredients, and you're done with the icing!

Glaze the cookies with icing and let it harden over a couple of hours, then I used a clean sumi brush to paint with regular old food coloring (Do not add water). ENJOY!!!
