Cream the butter and sugar.
Add eggs, mix in one at a time.
Stir in remaining ingredients but do not over mix.
Divide the dough into two bowls.
Add a little red food coloring to one and mix in. You don’t want to totally mix it in, just so the color is lightly spread through the dough.
Add a little green food coloring to one and mix in. You don’t want to totally mix it in, just so the color is lightly spread through the dough.
Refrigerate dough for about 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or foil.
Flatten each ball slightly.
Bake for 12 minutes. Don’t overcook. You don’t want these to brown at all.
While the cookies are baking, mix your glaze ingredients in a bowl.
When cookies are baked, put them on a rack to cool. I like to put a towel under the rack to catch the glaze.
With a pastry brush or spoon, spread about a teaspoon of glaze over the tops of each cookie.
Allow cookies to cool completely. Store in an airtight container. Do not store in same container as any other cookie.
