Cookie Yield

The pancakes are medium sized cookies (about 3.5"). And the blueberry is a mini cookie. For a single batch of dough, you can make about 12 pancakes and 24 mini blueberries. 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 have 5 icing colors. I used Bright White, Leaf Green, Super Red, and Diamond Black (used for the black and gray).  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 Black Diamond (1/2 oz pipe and 1/2 oz flood)
6 oz Light Brown (1 oz pipe and 5 oz flood)
1 oz Dark Brown (flood only)
6 oz Royal Blue (1 oz pipe and 7 oz flood)
1 oz Dark Royal Blue (1 oz flood only)
4 oz Bright White (1 oz flood only)
1 oz Gray - add a dab of black icing to white (1 oz 20-second icing)
