  1. Instructions
  2. Cream all of the ingredients together except for the flour. Then slowly add the flour and mix until smooth. Chill the dough covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator. After 2 hours, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease cookie sheets and roll out the dough and use cookie cutters. I like my dough about 1/4 inch thick. Bake for 7-10 minutes depending on how thick you roll your cookies.
Recipe Notes


3 egg whites

1-pound powdered sugar

1/2 tsp. cream of tartar

F00d coloring if desired

Instructions: Wait to make the frosting until right before you are ready to frost the cookies. The frosting will be a little runny until it starts to thicken up as it dries. Work fast when you start to frost those yummy cookies.
