The Best Way to Say Thank You -- Cookies
Vanilla Sugar Cookies
Royal Icing - in white and multiple colors
Tips #1 & #2
Plastic Wrap (for Icing Bag Bullets)
Zipper top baggie
I chose two simple shapes for these cookies, circles, and fluted rectangles.
To make the icing... I made 4 pastel shades for my foreign languages, and grey/black for the "Thank You." You only need about 1/4 cup of the outline consistency for each color. You need about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of the flood consistency white for 2 dozen cookies.
Do wait 30 minutes or more on the "Thank You." I piped the Thank You with tip #2 and the others with tip #1. I like how the Thank You sticks up compared to the others that sink in.
The Thank Yous that I used:
Arigato (Japanese), Asante (Swahili), Danke (German), Gracias (Spanish), Grazie (Italian), Mahalo (Hawaiian), Merci (French), Tack (Swedish).
