Ingredients
  

COOKIES

  • 1 1/2 Cups Gluten-Free Bisquick by Betty Crocker
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1/3 Cup Cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 Cup Butter softened
  • 1 Egg yolk Note: set the egg whites aside for later

ICING

  • Confectioner's sugar
  • Water
  • Food colouring if desired

Instructions
 

COOKIES

  • Mix all ingredients together by hand in a large bowl, except for the egg whites.
  • If the dough feels too crumbly, carefully add small amounts of egg whites until the dough is easier to roll into a large ball.
  • Lighlty cover your workspace and rolling pin with gluten-free flour.
  • Roll out the dough evenly (about 1/4 thick) and cut out your cookies with your cookie cutters of choice.
  • Place your cut-out cookies on a baking sheet lined with foil and chill for about 10 minutes in the refrigerator. Note: this is extremely important! If you don't chill them, they will expand and lose their shape once you bake them.
  • 375°F for 10 minutes, or until edges are golden. Set aside and allow them to completely cool before decorating.

ICING

  • In a large bowl, pour in the desired amount of icing sugar.
  • Slowly add teaspoons of water and mix together as you go until you reach the desired consistency. Add any food colouring if desired.
  • You can either use a spoon, or pour the icing into ziplock bags and cut off the tip of one the corners to pipe it on (this is my preferred method).
