  4. Turn mixer power to low and mix in flour
  5. Scoop tablespoon-sized balls of dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet
  6. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until edges are golden
  7. Allow cookies to cool for 3 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack. Let cool completely
  8. Whisk together glaze ingredients in a small bowl and transfer to ziploc bag once combined
