Sweet Little Cherry Sugar Cookies
No cherry-shaped cookie cutter? No problem. Try a bone-shaped cutter instead.
One batch Vanilla Sugar Cookies
Royal Icing in red, green & white
Bone-shaped cookie cutter (or heart-shaped cutter)
Decorating tips 3, 5, 352
3 Decorating bags
2 Small zip-top baggies
Color about 1/2 of it red, 1/4 green and 1/4 stays white. Load icing bags with tip #3 for red & white. Load green with a tip #5. (To make cleanup a whole lot easier, and keep your icing from drying out, use Icing Bag Bullets for the icing you will pipe.)
For icing in the consistency to "flood" the cookies, you want to add water about 1 tsp. at a time until a drop "disappears" back into the icing by the count of 10. You only need to thin out the red icing. Thin about 2/3 of what you colored to a flooding consistency. Pour that into a zip-top sandwich bag.
