Grandma’s Special Christmas Tree Brown Sugar Cookies
These brown sugar cookies are a favorite in our family. We make them every year from this recipe my Grandmother had cut from a magazine years ago. They are soft, chewy and sweet. A perfect Christmas treat!

Icing
  1. Combine powdered sugar and slightly beaten egg white until smooth.
  2. Add melted butter, salt, and vanilla. Mix until smooth. If the glaze is too thin, add more powdered sugar until desired consistency is reached.
  3. If you want to color the icing, now is the time. Add food coloring. For multiple colors, make an extra batch or divide and color small portions. Green food coloring is great for Christmas trees!
