  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.

  • On a floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/2 inch thickness and cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters. Place 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.

  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack.

  • While cookies are baking, prepare frosting: Mix together the confectioners' sugar, oil and 1 teaspoon vanilla until smooth. Gradually add enough hot water to achieve a spreadable consistency.

  • Spread frosting over warm cookies.
