Ingredients

2 cups sifted powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
2 to 3 tablespoons milk
Red cinnamon candies
Green food coloring

Instructions

In a small mixing bowl, stir powdered sugar and milk to make a glazing consistency. Spread the top of a cookie with some glaze, and while icing is still wet, drop 2 or 3 cinnamon candies on for the holly berries. When glaze is dry, take a VERY thin paint brush and paint holly leaves with green food coloring; let dry.
