Step 1

Directions for cookies:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix first four ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients, mixing by hand until well combined.

Drop cookie dough by the tablespoonful onto a cookie sheet lined with a Silpat, or lightly greased with coconut oil. If you would like the cookies to be flatter in shape, you can flatten them down a bit (they won't flatten out when they bake). Bake for 15 minutes, and remove from the oven to cool before icing.

Directions for glaze:
Put all ingredients in a food processor or blender, and process until smooth. Glaze cookies immediately. Store cookies in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Note: If you want a less sweet cookie, they're also great on their own without the glaze.
