How to Decorate a Mrs. Claus Cookie
Cute Penguin Cookie Cutter
Repeat after me, "I can create cookies with confidence!" You have what it takes, my fellow cookie fanatic. Just take a deep breath, follow the tutorial step-by-step and have a blast! Happy decorating!- Anne Yorks, owner The Flour Box
Guess Who?! She's the queen of the Christmas cookie and Santa's bff and now she has her own video!
Mrs. Claus and Santa use the same cutter - the cute penguin. It is a large cookie, so for a single batch of dough, you can make 15 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 project has 6 icing colors. I used Coal Black, Christmas Red, Fleshtone, Neon Green, Deep Pink, and Bright White. I don't measure exactly...I estimate. For a more detailed look at icing planning, CLICK HERE to read this helpful blog post.
