  • 1/3 cup butter, melted


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cookies: Combine cookie ingredients in large bowl and mix well. Dough will be thick. Using a medium size cookie scoop or heaping tablespoon, drop cookies onto prepared cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 7-8 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and let cool on cookie sheet for 4-5 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack. Repeat until all of the dough has been used.
  5. Glaze: Combine the glaze ingredients in a small saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, whisking constantly until the sugar is dissolved. Spoon a teaspoon of glaze over each cookie and spread out, if necessary. Let glaze set, then sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.
