Ingredients
Make It
Step 1
Preheat oven to 325° F.
Step 2
Sprinkle flour onto work surface. Roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness, using additional flour as needed to prevent sticking. Cut into star shapes with cookie cutters. Transfer cookies to ungreased baking sheets with spatula.
Step 3
Combine sifted powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon milk and vanilla extract in small bowl. Stir in additional milk, 1 teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Set aside one-third of icing. Divide remaining icing between two bowls. Add red food coloring to one bowl and blue to the other; stir well.
Step 4
Bake for 10 to 14 minutes or until light brown around edges. Smaller cutters and sharp edges tend to produce darker cookies. Cool on baking sheets for 1 minute; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Pipe, spoon or spread red, white and blue icing onto cookies to create stripes.
