Adapted from Allrecipes.com

2 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup butter softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 egg

Confectioners Sugar

5. Roll out dough (1/4 in) and cut out shapes with a cookie cutter (press lollypop sticks into the cookies for cookie pops)

6. Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown

7. Cool completely before icing

I use about 1 cup of confectioners sugar and VERY SLOWLY (LIKE A TABLESPOON AT A TIME) add the milk. I used about a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla for flavoring and a drop of green food coloring.
