When winter isn’t quite done with snow, it’s time for one more cup of cocoa.

Cookie Yield

For a single batch of dough, you can make 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 project has 5 icing colors. I used Coal Black, Gray (small dot of coal black), Super Red, Sky Blue (light and dark), Buckeye Brown, 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.
