Bake Spirits Bright this holiday season with this NEW Christmas faces tutorial!
Learn how to make five Christmas faces: Santa, Mrs. Claus, Elf, Snowman, and Reindeer!
This tutorial includes a step-by-step look at this NEW Christmas face - the one and only Mrs. Claus.
For a single batch of dough, you can make about 20-24 of these cookies (3-4 of each). 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.
COOKIE RECIPE: For a cookie recipe and rolling and baking video CLICK HERE - this recipe can be doubled in a KitchenAid Mixer.
Prepping the Royal Icing
The color palette is classic Christmas colors, red and green with several accents! Check out the icing guide below for tips on making the right colors and an estimate of how much of each color you'll need.
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).
The Christmas Faces cookie set has 6 icing colors.
ICING PLAN BY THE OUNCE
Here is what I suggest making for a single batch.
White - 5 oz (pipe and flood)
Super Red - 3 oz (pipe and flood)
Leaf Green - 3 oz (pipe and flood)
Black Diamond - 3 oz (pipe and flood)
Buckeye Brown - 3 oz (pipe and flood)
Sienna - 3 oz (pipe only)
These amounts are ESTIMATES. When it comes to how much icing to make, l don't measure exactly...I estimate. For a more detailed look at icing planning, CLICK HERE to read this helpful blog post.
ROYAL ICING RECIPE

Plan ahead to enjoy the most success with your cookie project! I break up the decorating process. It works better with my life to do a little each day. Here is the schedule for this cookie project and estimated times on how long each phase takes.
Mix Dough (30 mins), Chill Dough (2 hours inactive time), Roll and Bake (1 hour), Mix Royal Icing and Prep Icing Colors - it is helpful to make the colors the day before you decorate because the color will deepen overnight. (1 hour).
Outline and Flood Cookies (1-2 hours), Allow to dry in front of fan before adding details (1 hour for standard cookies). Piping details (2 hours). The details take a little extra time due to drying the apple layers in the bushel and the cart.
**ALLOW COOKIES TO FULLY DRY 18-24 HOURS BEFORE PACKING. STORE IN A COOL OVEN OVER NIGHT.**
