Simple and easy to make. These cookies are great to bake with kids.
6 eggs1 1/2 cup sugar4 teaspoons baking powder1/2 lb. butter1 orange (for zest)1/2 cup milk1 teaspoon vanilla extract6 cups of flour
Put the eggs, sugar, butter, milk and vanilla in a bowl and use a mixer to blend them all together. Add in a bit of zest from the orange using a grater.
In another bowl put the flour and baking powder and lightly mix together. Then slowly add the flour to the large bowl and mix up.
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Roll the dough out, adding flour to your table if the batter is too sticky. Cut into cool shapes, add to a pan and bake for 12-15 minutes (check at 12 minutes and look underneath a cookie to see if it's lightly brown).
Confectioners sugar (also known as powdered sugar), few drops of vanilla extract and milk. Start with 2 cups of confectioners sugar and slowly add milk, mixing until the icing is thick and slowly drops from the mixer. Enjoy!
