Let them cool for 15 minutes uninterrupted before transferring them to a plate. Let them cool completely before decorating.
  6. While cookies are cooling, blend frosting ingredients together and place into piping bag. Decorate cookies as desired. Store any leftovers in an airtight container. Enjoy!
