These were the darling cookies that I baked earlier last week and froze so that I could have them all cooled when it was time to frost! I spent hours yesterday in the kitchen making frosting and tinting frosting and cleaning up my mess . . .well, sort of! More hours of putting a layer of frosting on . . . waiting. Another layer of frosting . . . waiting! Another . . .well, you get the picture!
I saw this idea on a couple of other site! It's kind of like giving out thank you's -- as soon as you start, there is someone that you leave out! I'm not trying to short-change any of the creative minds, but if I got this idea from you -- Thanks! I know I saw it on Sugar Sweet Belle's site!
For the pictures -- because that's what we really want to see, isn't it!

Using my favorite sugar cookie dough that mixes in a food processor, rolling the dough out to 3/8" thick, baking the cookies to just barely done -- made for a very soft cookie after adding the royal icing! About royal icing -- I buy the meringue powder and follow the directions. I prefer to tint with the AmeriColor gel paste, which I purchase from a cake supply store. The website is www.americolorcorp.com. Perhaps it's a good place to start looking.
Hope your day was great!
