|Cookies with icing|
Gradually add in the flour mixture until just combined.
Roll cookie dough into 2 Tablespoon sized balls and place 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.
Bake 10-13 minutes or until the bottoms start to turn golden. Cool on the baking sheet 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack.
To make the icing: Combine the milk and sugar in a bowl. Stir until all the lumps are gone. Spread gently over the cooling cookies. Let the icing set before serving or storing in an airtight container.
