    Remove from the oven, allow them to cool for about 5 minutes on the cookie sheet and then roll them in powdered sugar to coat evenly. Place on a wire rack to cool.

    After the cookies are cooled combine all the ingredients for the glaze and stir with a fork until smooth.
  8. Place the glaze in a small bag, clip one corner of the bag, and then drizzle the glaze over the cookies.

    If you want thinner glaze...add some half & half till desired consistency.
