Decorating cookies is new to me, and if it is new to you I suggest you
check out Annie's Eats - How to Decorate with Royal Icing tutorial!
She made it super easy and her recipe for icing was tasty!!
Outline your cookies and then once the icing has set fill them in!
Have fun and be creative!
I added chunks of broken mint chocolate chips to make "mint chocolate chip ice cream" cones!
And I added some extra red sanding sugar to the hearts!
Some pretty pink posies
This cookie recipe is delicious! The icing is easy peasy - thanks to the tutorial!
I enjoyed making and decorating these cookies, and I especially enjoyed eating them!!
