Personalized Fall Cookies
What You Need:
Vanilla Sugar Cookie Recipe
Royal Icing Recipe
Sanding sugar sprinkles
Piping Bags with Tip #1 or #2
Paper Plates (for sprinkling)
*If you have never worked with Royal Icing before, I recommend checking out a few other of my cookie posts to give you an idea how to make it work. I didn't take as many photos of these cookies because I just needed to get them done and out the door.
(See here: Royal Icing Recipe- has a lot of how-tos and tricks. Beach Ball Cookies is another good one.)
When the flood icing is dry, add the outline, accents or letters over the top.
I also recommend NOT doing as shown above. Set the cookie on a clean plate to dust off the extra sprinkles. When you do it this way, the back gets all sprinkly, and you have to dust that off, too, and it's just a pain!
To Make the Acorn Cookies:
I said above that I love the acorn cookies best. I think they're the cutest. And they weren't hard.
I found that I could outline and fill about 4 cookies before I needed to sprinkle them, without the icing starting to get a little set and making the sprinkles patchy on top.
Then you'll outline and fill the bottom half with lighter brown.
