INGREDIENTS

Cookies:
4 eggs, well beaten
2 cups white sugar
1 cup butter
4 cups white flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Cream together the eggs, vanilla, sugar, and butter. Sift together dry ingredients and add to the creamed mixture. Mix well.

Spray a * jelly roll pan with baking spray and spread cookie dough evenly to all sides. You can always sprinkle the top with flour and use a rolling pin like I did!

*A jelly roll pan is 17-1/2′ x 12-1/2′ x 1′ deep. It is a baking sheet with sides so the batter does not slip off. A lot of people use jelly roll pans as cookie sheets.

Bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or so, until top is golden.

Icing:
6 cups icing sugar (powder sugar) (can add a bit more to stiffen icing)
1 cup butter
1/2 milk
2 tsp almond extract
several drops of food coloring

Whip together icing ingredients until light and fluffy. Spread evenly over cooled cookie bars.

Slice cookie bars and serve!
