5. Gradually add dry ingredients in to wet in three different portions. Mixing until just combined after each addition of dry ingredients.

7. Scoop by the heaping tablespoonful onto an ungreased baking sheet (I used my medium-sized cookie scoop).
8. Bake for 10-13 minutes.  Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for about 5 minutes, then transfer to wire cooling rack to cool completely.

10. Pour glaze into a piping bag or Ziploc bag with the corner snipped. Drizzle glaze over cooled cookies.
