Cookie Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees f.

Use a stand mixer to cream together the butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and egg until creamy and totally combined.

Place the flour, cream of tarter and baking soda into a large bowl and mix together.

Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until a dough forms.

Place about 3 tablespoons of flour onto a cutting board and place the dough onto the cutting board.

Sprinkle some flour onto the cookie dough and roll out the dough to about 2 inches thick.

Cut out the cookies and place them onto the cookie sheet.

Bake the cookies for about 8-10 minutes.

Let the cookies cool completely before decorating.

Glaze Instructions

Whisk the milk, powdered sugar and vanilla extract together until smooth.

Spoon about 1/8 cup of icing into two bowls. Add a few drops of red food coloring into one bowl and blue food coloring into the second bowl.

Mix until both are combined.

Spoon each color into its own piping bag.

Cut the tip off the piping bags.

Drizzle the colors into the white icing 2 times, going vertically and horizontally.

Dip the cookie into the icing and turn the cookies 90 degrees.

Place the cookie back onto the wire rack and repeat the previous steps for remaining cookies.

Serve and enjoy!

      Now these look like some amazing biscuits, I mean who doesn’t love Mickey Mouse and the effect of marbling on them is great.

      Okay….this is brilliant and in my eyes Mickey is a symbol of the U.S. anyway. Pinning and may try it for our annual block 4th of July party.
