4cupsall purpose flourdivided into 3½ cups and a ½ cup
3tablespoonslight corn syrup
optional:food coloring, sprinkles
In a large mixing bowl beat the sugar and butter with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla and salt and continue mixing until combined. Gradually incorporate 3 ½ cups of flour until dough forms.
Roll dough into a large ball and cover in plastic wrap. Place back into bowl and chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour, or as long as overnight.
Use remaining flour to dust your prep surface and roll out the dough to about a ¼ inch thick. Cut dough with cookie cutters and place shapes on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake at 350°F for 12 minutes or just until the edges are turning golden. Allow cookies to cool on a wire rack.
While cookies are cooling, in a large bowl whisk together the powdered sugar, corn syrup and water until combined.
Separate the icing into 1 cup for each desired color, and add food coloring to each. Transfer the icing to piping bags (or small sandwich bags with the corner snipped).
Pipe around the edges of your cookies and the edges of the designs. Once the edges slightly set (5-10 minutes) use remaining icing to fill in the cookies. A toothpick or the edge of a knife works well to spread out the icing.
Top with sprinkles while icing is wet. Allow icing to set before serving.
