Cookie Yield

These are medium sized cookies (about 3.5"). 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).


These cookies have 5 icing colors. I used Bright White, Leaf Green, Super Red, and Diamond Black (used for the black and gray).  l don't measure exactly...I estimate. For a more detailed look at icing planning, CLICK HERE to read this helpful blog post.

If you're making a full batch of these cookies, here is a breakdown of the icing by ounce

7 oz Black Diamond (1 oz pipe and 6 oz flood)
10 oz Leaf Green (1 oz pipe and 9 oz flood)
1 oz Super Red (20-second only)
1 oz Gray (or pastel black diamond) (20-second only)
1 oz Bright White (1 oz flood only)
