I’m a girl that loves options, so let me show you 3 different ways to decorate this adorable Baby Carriage Cookie. I will show 2 easy wet-on-wet designs and a beautiful design with the basketweave technique!

 

Cookie Yield

This is a medium cookie. For a single batch of dough, you can make about 18 of these cookies. I should note that I roll my cookies to 1/4" thick using the Dough EZ Rolling Mat System. The thickness of your cookies will impact your yield.

Prepping the Royal Icing

ICING PREP 

For a single batch of dough, I typically use a single batch of icing. Since I'm using a KitchenAid mixer, I made a double batch of icing and split it in half (reserving half for another project).

This cookie has 3 icing colors. I used Deep Pink (in 2 shades), Sky Blue, and White. l don't measure exactly...I estimate. For a more detailed look at icing planning, CLICK HERE to read this helpful blog post.
