I made cookies last week and the RI dried with a matte finish yet i always see cookies in the gallery that look shiney. How can you get your cookies to dry with a shine?

Instead of using watered down RI to flood the cookie, I use Penny's glaze:

1 Tbsp light corn syrup
1/4 tsp extract of your choice
3 cups conf. sugar
Mix ingredients with 1/4 cup warm water.

(recipe was featured in Texas Monthly)

My cookies always come out with a sheen.

It doesn't dry rock hard like RI, but if you let the cookie set for 24-48 hrs, it's definitely good to go. I am actually making some cookies using this glaze tonight for a baby shower on Friday (will package them Thursday night).

sorry to bother you again, but do you let the cookies air dry? do the cookies get stale from leaving them out?

I do let them air dry. The recipe that I use makes very soft cookies, and leaving them out for a day or so doesn't make them stale as much as it makes them sturdier. I actually like them better after they've set out!
