Cookies are good at any time of year and the basic Butter or Sugar Cutout Cookies can be so much fun for the holidays.
For Christmas there are so many Cookie Cutters. Although the cookies shown here are a bit more involved to decorate in this manner, the initial cookie decorator icing is easy enough to make and use.
The icing recipe is not hard to make and it can be so much fun to use to make your cookies special.
After you mix your icing you divide it into separate bowls and add your food coloring. Then put each color into a bottle to use on your cookies.
The next step is to outline each cookie with a single line of your icing around each cookie and let it dry.
Finally you take your bottle of color you are using for the cookie and squeeze it into the middle and smooth it out.
Once the icing is set on the cookie you can decorate away with strings of different colors.
If you don't want to make your own icing you can still make your own designs because there are products out there that do the same thing as your royal icing.
However you choose to make these cookies, the thing to remember is that your a making a memory for the children for whom you make these cookies.
HAPPY BAKING AND DECORATING. MERRY CHRISTMAS.
