   1. Preheat oven to 375F (190C). Place sheets of foil on

   mixture just until blended. Stir in chocolate chips.
   4. Drop by rounded measuring tablespoonfuls (15 mL) of
   dough 3 inches (7 cm) apart onto ungreased baking sheet.
   5. Bake one baking sheet at a time at 375F (190C) for 8
   to 10 minutes for chewy cookies, or 11 to 13 minutes for
   crisp cookies. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Cool 2 minutes on baking
   sheet. Remove cookies to foil to cool completely.
   6. For icing, combine icing sugar and 3 tablespoons (45 mL)
   water. Mix to blend well. Add additional water, a little at
   a time, if icing is too stiff. Add additional confectioners
   sugar if icing is too thin. Add food colour, a few drops at
