  2. To make the cookies:
    1. In a food processor, combine the butter and flour and mix until crumbs form. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and make a well.

    3. Mix with your hands until a dough forms.
    4. Form the dough into a disk and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
    5. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    6. Roll the dough out between 2 pieces of parchment paper to about 1/4 inch thickness. Using a star cookie cutter, cut out as many cookies as possible. Re roll any scraps and cut out more cookies.
    7. If the dough becomes too sticky, refrigerate for 10 minutes and roll the dough out again.
    8. Place the cut out cookies on the parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
    9. Cool completely before glazing.
  3. To make the glaze:
    1. In a bowl whisk together the confectioners sugar, milk and extract until a thick glaze forms. Drizzle the glaze over the cookies.
    2. For a more precise application, Fill a small plastic zipper top bag with the glaze. Snip a small corner off one side and pipe the glaze around the outline of the cookie and fill with more glaze. Decorate with colored nonpareils.
