Tablespoon white vinegar

2 1/4

Cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour

3/4

Teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2

Drops red food color

Frosting

2

Cups powdered sugar

1/2

Teaspoon vanilla

Tablespoons milk or half-and-half

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. In large bowl, beat 1 cup powdered sugar, the butter and vinegar with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in remaining cookie ingredients except food color. Divide dough in half. Mix food color into one half. (If dough is too dry, stir in milk, 1 teaspoon at a time.)

  • 3 Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until set but not brown. Cool 1 to 2 minutes; carefully remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

4 In medium bowl, mix all frosting ingredients until smooth and spreadable. Tint with food color if desired. Spread frosting on cookies.
