  • Place on un-greased cookie sheets.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes do not leave in any longer as they continue to cook after removing from the oven.

Directions for Powdered sugar Icing (makes a lot so you may want to cut in half):

  • A few tablespoons of milk
  • 2 teaspoons lemon or anise flavoring
  • Combine sugar, milk and flavoring in a medium bowl, stirring well until sugar is dissolved – (I use a whisk)
