Stocking with tag Cookie Cutter

One cutter! Three designs! Mix icing colors and techniques to create tasty Christmas treats! Airbrush a quick background to add a beautiful pattern. Use wet-on-wet polka dots for a quick cookie. And, create a rich knit texture using basketweave.
For a single batch of dough, you can make about 18-20 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).
This cookie set has 5 icing colors. I used Bright White, Christmas Red, Mint, Leaf Green, and Lemon Yellow (this is for the tree stars and is optional). l don't measure exactly...I estimate. For a more detailed look at icing planning, CLICK HERE to read this helpful blog post.
