Kneaders Sugar Cookies

Kneaders Bakery & Cafe Restaurant Recipe

2 cups butter
2 1/4 cups sugar
4 large eggs
1 cup milk
7 3/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon lemon flavor
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon honey

Cream together butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, then milk.  Scrape the sides of the bowl often. Stir in remaining ingredients.  Dough will be soft and sticky. Place dough on well floured pastry cloth or work space. Knead in just enough flour to make dough workable.  Dough will be very soft.  It is best to knead with a rolling motion so you have a smooth surface and you will not get cracks on the tops of your cookies. Gently roll out to 3/8 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes and place on baking sheet lined with parchment. Bake at 325 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until just the edges barely start to change colors. Makes about 4 dozen.

Lemon Glaze:
4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
4 tablespoons corn syrup
1/4 cup milk 
1/2 teaspoon lemon flavor 

Mix together all ingredients until smooth. Dip cookie in icing and let drip for a moment.  Flip over quickly and let sit on a cooling rack that has been placed over tin foil to catch drippings. Let set until hard.  Decorate with icing, chocolate chips, candy, coconut etc.
