Now that you have these wonderful and lovely cookies, you may want to decorate them. But you may not want to spend all day doing that. Here are a couple of easy ways to finish them off.
Pretty Pink Glaze
- 1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
- 2-3 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1-2 drops of red food coloring
- red decorating sugar (optional)
Mix the ingredients together, using enough milk to make a relatively thin glaze.
I like to have glaze over the entire cookie, so I dip the bottoms in first and let them dry on a rack.
Then, dip them from the top and sprinkle with red sugar if desired.
Let these cookies dry, and you'll have delicious and beautiful treats!
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 1 cup butterscotch chips
- 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
- 1 teaspoon shortening
Melt the chips over a double boiler.
When the chips are about half melted, add the corn syrup and shortening.
This is a reasonably thick covering, so I only dip the tops into the melted "gold" mixture. Once they have cooled and the "gold" has set, I like to outline the the design on the top using a toothpick. Just makes it show up a little bit better. Beautiful! And so yummy.
