• You can use whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour.
• Add more milk if dough becomes hard
• Stir the frosting in the pan between applying to the cookies. If it starts to get thick then it becomes difficult to spread smoothly onto cookies. Just place the pan back on the stove over medium heat for about 15-25 seconds while whisking until it thins again.
