Baked-On Frosting

2/3
cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
2/3
cup butter or margarine, softened
3
to 4 teaspoons hot water
  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, mix all cookie ingredients until well blended. Divide dough into thirds. On lightly floured surface, roll each third 1/8 inch thick. Cut dough with cookie cutters. On ungreased cookie sheets, place shapes 2 inches apart.
  • 2 In medium bowl, mix 2/3 cup flour and the butter until smooth. Stir in hot water until thin enough to drizzle. Place in decorating bag with number 5 writing tip. Outline or decorate unbaked cookies with frosting.
  • 3 Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until edges are light brown. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks.

Expert Tips

If you don't have a decorating bag, you can make one from a plastic bag or paper envelope. Spoon frosting into the corner of a resealable plastic bag and seal, or spoon frosting into the corner of an envelope and fold the end over. Snip off the corner of the bag or envelope to make a writing tip.

When using cookie cutters, keep a small portion of the flour on the side to dip them into between cuts. This will help prevent dough from sticking to the cutters.
