Source: Unknown
Yield: 3 to 4 dozen cookies

1/2 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup margarine
1 cup flour
1/2 cup cornstarch

Glaze Frosting:
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Heat oven to 325°F.

In large bowl, beat powdered sugar and margarine until well blended. Stir in flour and cornstarch. Mix well. If necessary, refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.

Shape dough into 3/4" balls. Place 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes until lightly browned. Immediately remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.

Put glaze into small Ziploc bags, slit corner to dribble on cookies.

Make different color glazes separate into bags, add food coloring and dribble on cookies.

Let dry before storing.

Poster's Notes:
When using this glaze for the cookies, I put it in a sandwich bag and cut the corner and draw with the glaze. The smaller the hole the finer the line, etc. And no mess. These are a great cookies.
