  6. Mix well
  7. Drop batter (from about a big tablespoon) 2 inches apart onto a lightly greased baking sheet
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes (I did 8-9 minutes because we like them soft and they were perfect)
  9. Make glaze: combine powdered sugar, butter, vanilla and half and half and beat until smooth

  11. Spread glaze on warm cookies
  12. Enjoy!
