Illini Cookies

I have been trying to find a sugar cookie recipe that I can use for some upcoming parties.  I love how they make the cookies on sticks, so I was playing around yesterday and today trying to see if I could do it.  The first batch were some shortbread cookies with really yummy, shiny icing...but the cookies flaked in your mouth.  TJ and the kids liked them, but they just weren't what I was looking for, so we tried again today.  I found a new recipe and a new icing recipe.  They taste better than the first batch, but now I'm not sure the icing will stay cute when I layer them in my container.  I'm leaving them out to dry for a few hours, and then we'll see!
