White: Reserve 2 cups icing

Step 2

Note: Make and decorate cookies 1 day in advance to allow for drying time.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Step 4

In large bowl, beat butter and sugar with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and flavors. Mix flour, baking powder and salt; add to butter mixture 1 cup at a time, mixing after each addition. Do not chill dough. Divide dough into 2 balls.

Step 5

On floured surface, roll each ball into a circle approximately 12 inches in diameter by 1/8 inch thick. Cut cookies with star nesting metal cookie cutter. Dip cutter in flour before each use.

Step 6

Bake cookies on ungreased cookie sheet 8 to 11 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned.

Step 7

Prepare Color Flow icing. Tint icing following color formulas above. Use tip 3, a parchment bag and full-strength icing to outline cookies: 32 in red, 21 in white and 16 in blue. Let cookies dry 1 to 2 hours.

Step 8

Thin 1 cup red, 1/4 cup blue and 1 cup white icing. Use thinned icing and a disposable decorating bag to fill in cookies. Fill in 8 of the blue outlined cookies with white icing and remaining cookies with matching outline color. Let dry 8 to 12 hours.

Step 9

To serve, arrange cookies on tray in stars and stripes design.
