Cookie Yield

With a single batch of dough, you can make about 18-22 average sized 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

ICING PREP 

If you're making ALL four sets, you'll need quite a few icing colors. Feel free to focus on just one set or two if you're new to decorating. It is always nice to have SHARED colors when making multiple designs. All of the sets use white, black, and brown.

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).

ICING GUIDE

I thought it would be easier to break the color guides down by each cookie set. All of the colors used are straight from the bottle (no gel/color mixing) except the peanut butter colored icing. I mixed equal parts of golden yellow + brown to make the peanut butter. 

ICING PLAN BY THE COOKIE SET

Use this list to know what icing consistencies are needed for each set.

Project Timeline

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.

DAY 1 

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). 

DAY 2 

Outline and Flood Cookies (1-2 hours), Allow to dry in front of fan before adding details (1 hour for standard cookies, but 6 hours before stenciling on the surface of the cookie). Piping details and stenciling (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.** 

DAY 3

If you are packing these cookies as sets, I suggest using the 9" white window box from BRP Box Shop! They are the perfect fit!
