1 T. milk
1/2 tsp. Madagascar Pure Vanilla extract

Tools: Giant Cookie Pans

Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray giant cookie pan with vegetable pan spray. Cream butter and sugar, add egg and mix.  Add remaining ingredients and mix until smooth. Dip hands into flour and pat dough into prepared pan. Prick dough eith a fork. Bake 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Place on cooling rack for 5 minutes. Loosen edges with spatula; remove from pan and cool.



4 c. powdered sugar
2 T. meringue powder
6 T. water

Mix all ingredients on low speed for 7-10 minutes or until the icing loses its shine.  Add more water by the teaspoon if it appears too stiff. At this stage you want to be able to pipe it easily.  I added vanilla but I think Almond flavoring would be great also.
