Cookie Yield

This is a medium cookie. So for a single batch of dough, you can make 20-24 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


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).

These cookies feature 5 icing colors - which is totally manageable!! Let me break that down for you! I used Fleshtone, White, Buckeye Brown, Black and tiny dot of pink on the cat's ear. I don't measure exactly...I estimate. For a more detailed look at icing planning, CLICK HERE to read this helpful blog post.
