Shortbread cookies with Icing cookies - Eggless cookies recipe - Kids friendly

Merry Christmas! Shortbread cookies is one of my kids most favourite cookie recipe. So far I haven't tried icing before. I always had this misconception that icing requires more sugar and would be very sweet. So I had been avoiding it even after multiple requests from my kids. After I saw one of the videos I realised that the amount of sugar can be controlled. It is also very colourful and attractive. I have followed basic shortbread cookie recipe.
