This is a medium cookie. So for a single batch of dough, you can make 18 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).
I made a variety of sweater designs. To make all of these, you'll need 5 icing colors: Leaf Green (light and dark), Super Red, White, and Sky Blue. I used a brown, black and orange foodoodler marker to add the details on the snowman. I don't measure exactly...I estimate.
