From the Test Kitchen
Bake and cool cookies completely. Do not frost. In an airtight or freezer container arrange cookies in a single layer; cover with a sheet of waxed paper. Repeat layers, leaving enough air space to close container easily. Freeze up to 1 month. Thaw before frosting.
- Combine sifted powdered sugar, a few drops red food coloring, and enough milk (1 to 2 tablespoons) to make of spreading consistency.
