How genius are those cookies?!    From Bake at 350.

I made just a simple round cookie. Outlined it and then flooded it with white (royal) icing. (I added a decorative edge piping.) The cookies dried overnight, then I let me son loose with the food coloring pens.

TIPS FOR MAKING THESE:

  1. Let the cookies dry overnight. This is a MUST! The cookies will look dry in a few hours. Trust me, they’re not.
  2. Make extras. Food coloring pens take a light touch…this is a difficult concept for kids (or maybe just mine?). The markers will poke into the icing making a hole if pushed. Not a big deal, but if you like things “perfect,” have extras. 🙂
  3. I use AmeriColor Gourmet Writers. They come in a pack with about 10 colors and the tips are a little thinner than others. But, other brands of food coloring pens are widely available at craft and grocery stores.
