Introduction

This came from my Mom via my sister in law Kim. She doesn't ice them, but rather decorates with some colored sugar for the holidays. First time out I made the frosting too thick - it should be more of a glaze so I'll give it another shot. (I halved the whole recipe, but did not do so with the powdered sugar - oops -they were still tasty!) This came from my Mom via my sister in law Kim.
