Zip-top sandwich bags (or snack-size bags)
Plastic Wrap (for icing bag bullets)
Damp Paper Towel (to keep icing from drying out)
pencil cookies. Make a batch of the Vanilla Sugar Cookies, and after you roll it out and refrigerate it, cut it into a square. I kept my lines straight by lining up the end of the ruler at the corners, to make a 90-degree angle.
I then cut the dough in half horizontally. (Making each pencil about 4 1/2" long.)
Bake them for about 8-10 minutes in a 350-degree oven. They're done when the tips start to brown.
icing bag bullet (click the link to see the wonder of the bullet.). This is what you will make your outlines with. Then thin the other half of each color.
If you add too much water, you'll need to either add some more of a stiffer consistency icing, or add a little powdered sugar.
Pour this icing into a zip-top sandwich bag. That's what I use to put it on the cookies.
Then add the little swirly shapes to the rectangles.
And if you wish, switch to a tip #1 or 2 to write the names, or a message in your black ovals.
Perfect for preschool!!
