I love the size of this cookie cutter! Big enough for details, but not jumbo!
This Sand Castle cookie is a standout with that fun texture! Apply a little flood icing to the surface of the cookie and dab away with the tip of a brush!
Does this technique look familiar? It should! I also used it on the burger from the grill set.
And on these lemon cookies...
These are medium sized cookies (about 3.5"). For a single batch of dough, you can make about 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 ice cream cookies have 4 icing colors. 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:
1 oz Turquoise Green (1 oz pipe only)
1 oz Super Red (1 oz pipe ony)
1 oz Black Diamond (1 oz flood only)
17 oz Buckeye Brown (1 oz pipe and 16 oz flood)
For a royal icing recipe and video CLICK HERE - this recipe can be doubled in a KitchenAid Mixer.
I would be so flattered if you recreated these cookies!
