Cookies:
Pre-heat the oven to 350F. Beat together butter and sugar until creamy. Stir in extracts and eggs, then stir in dry ingredients. Form the dough into 1" balls and place 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten each cookie with your thumb. Bake for 11 minutes. Allow to cool 2 minutes on baking sheet, then remove to wire racks to cool.

Glaze:
In a small saucepan, slowly stir a small amount ot milk into the powdered sugar until it creates a glaze thin enough to be spread over the cookies. (I added a splash of anise extract to the glaze to give the cookies a bit more anise flavor.) Stir over low heat, then spread over cooled cookies (I used a pastry brush). Quickly top with colored sugar. I found it worked better to do the glaze and sugar in smaller batches, otherwise, the glaze dried and the sugar did not stick to the cookies.
