Cookie Yield


This is a medium cookie. So 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 only 4 icing colors - yay! I black, gray (made using a tiny dot of black), super red, fleshtone, and white, for 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.
