    To make the cookies you will need:

    2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

    1 teaspoon baking powder

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    3/4 cup butter, softened

    1 cup sugar

    2 eggs
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Icing

    2 egg whites

    3 cups confectioner’s sugar

    1/2 teaspoon almond extract

    Black food coloring paste

    • Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl and whisk until combined. Set aside.

    • Combine butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add flour mixture in three parts. Once dough comes together, cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

    • Preheat oven to 400°F.

    • On a floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Using a round cookie cutter or an overturned cup, cut dough into circles about 3 1/4 inches in diameter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

    • Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely before icing.


    For icing:
    • Place egg whites in bowl of an electric mixer; whisk until frothy. Add confectioners’ sugar a little at a time, until thick but still spreadable.

    • Place 1/3 of icing in a separate bowl. Add black food coloring paste to reserved icing and stir until color is uniform.

    • Decorate cooled cookies by covering with white icing and letting it dry (placing cookies in the refrigerator will speed up this process).

    • Place black icing in a pastry bag or a plastic resealable bag and cut off a tiny bit of the corner to create a very small hole. Use black icing to draw eyes, nostrils and stitched mouth on each cookie.

    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
