Cookie Yield

For a single batch of dough, you can make 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 cookies feature 4 icing colors. To make the sunflowers I used 7 oz of golden yellow and 2 oz of buckeye brown. For the mason jar, I used 7 oz of pastel sky blue and 2 oz of gray (made by adding a tiny dot of coal black food gel). A total of about 18 oz of icing. I don't measure exactly...I estimate.
