"Total time: 50 minutes 1 cup of butter - softened 1 cup of sugar 1 large eggs 1/2 Tablespoon of vanilla 2 1/2 cups of flour 1/8 teaspoon of salt ICING: 3 cups of powdered sugar 1/4 cup of cream 1 teaspoon of Vanilla 2 teaspoons of light corn syrup 1 tsp meringue powder Red & Blue food coloring gel In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, mix the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, and mix until well blended. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, and mix again. Add the vanilla, and blend. In a separate bowl, mix the flour and salt, and add a little at a time until all the flour is added, and well blended. Place the dough on a floured surface, and flour a rolling pin. Sprinkle a small amount of flour on top of the dough,and roll the dough to a thin layer. Cut out the Cookies with the Cookie Cutter, repeating until all the dough has been used. Place the cookies on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet, and bake for about 12 minutes, at 350 degrees, or until cookies are light golden brown around the edges. Remove the Cookies from the oven, and let the cookies cool completely. While the cookies are cooling, make the icing. In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, blend the cream, vanilla and corn syrup. Add the powdered sugar a little at a time until it's all been added, and blended. If the icing is too thin, add a little more powdered sugar, if it's too thick, and a few more drops of cream, starting with two or three drops. When you have the desired consistency, divide the icing into one larger bowl, and two slightly smaller bowls. Use the larger bowl for the White icing, (No Food Coloring required for the White Icing), and the small bowls for the Red and Blue icing. To color the icing, start with a few drops of the gel food coloring, and mix well. If the color is too light, add a little more and stir well until you get the color desired. No food coloring is added to the white icing. Place the Icing in plastic Pastry bags, and snip off a small amount of the pointed edge, to decorate. When the cookies have completely cooled, decorate with icing. Allow icing to dry, or set. "
