Let's make Fall more cheerful by making one sunflower cookie at a time!

Cookie Yield

 

This is a medium cookie. So for a single batch of dough, you can make 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

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).

These cookies feature only 3 icing colors - yay! I used 8 oz of the buckeye brown, 8 oz of the golden yellow, and 2 oz of the ivory, a total of about 18 oz of icing. I don't measure exactly...I estimate. For a more detailed look at icing planning, CLICK HERE to read this helpful blog post.
