1 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup Gossner Sweet Cream Butter, softened

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Grease cookie sheets. Mix together all ingredients until blended. Roll 2-inch sized pieces of dough into balls and place on cookie sheet. Flatten each with the back of a fork. Bake 13 to 15 minutes until light brown. Let cool on wire rack.

For the Frosting:

1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons Gossner Milk
2 teaspoons light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
Assorted food coloring

In a small bowl, stir together confectioners' sugar and milk until smooth. Beat in corn syrup and almond extract until icing is smooth and glossy. If icing is too thick, add more corn syrup.

Divide into separate bowls, and add food colorings to each to desired color. Dip cookies, or paint them with a brush.
