Tribute to my "cousin-in-law"

This Christmas I asked for a recipe for some amazing and beautiful cut out cookies. They are well known and desired by all my "cousin - in - law's" friends and family. They are my mom's favorite holiday treat. She shared the recipe she has mastered and has been making for 6 years. I decided to give them a try. I did well on the cut out part but respect needs to be given to Kim in great amounts to the icing part. Her cookies could be considered first experience glazing - What a disaster. Ed walked in during my first try at glazing them and told me "maybe you should go slower." My response was a death glare. I am not a slow project person. They tasted good but the glazing could have been better and the glaze faded for some reason after putting them in the fridge for a few days. I will try them again this Valentine's day. But communicating with a cousin who I don't normally talk to all but once or twice a year was fun. Thanks Kim and I will let you know how the next batch turns out.
