For the Sugar Cookie Dough
Combine butter, Crisco and sugar in bowl and beat.
Add in eggs and extract and mixed until combined
Add in dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
Refrigerate for at least one hour.
Roll out cookies to desired thickness and cut with cookie cutter.
Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes depending on thickness of cookie. If you like them softer, bake less.
Combine powder sugar, extract and corn syrup in bowl.
If you are using a liquid food coloring, you will need to use LESS milk. If you are using a gel food coloring, your milk quantity can remain the same. Add in milk to desired consistency. It will get too runny fast so be careful.
The corn syrup gives the “shine” to the frosting that you want.
