This is a medium cookie. 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 has 6 icing colors. I used Bright White, Deep Pink (just a dot to make the pastel pink), Leaf Green, Coal Black, Fleshtone, and Christmas Red. l don't measure exactly...I estimate. For a more detailed look at icing planning, CLICK HERE to read this helpful blog post.
