Pinterest worthy royal iced cookies…while a little time consuming, they are definitely attainable…even for a novice baker like me. I always wanted to learn the tricks to create “those” cookies that stop you in your tracks on social media. I started learning two months ago and am loving it! Last month I baked a shamrock sugar cookie, decorated with white royal icing and then used a stencil and color mist to add the gingham detail.
Watch the video below for instructions on how to create this cookie:

Cookie & Royal Icing Recipes
Click HERE for the Better Homes & Gardens recipe that I follow to make my sugar cookie. This recipe is technically for a shaped cookie but I refrigerate and roll the dough instead. I love the flavor of this cookie because it’s not overly sweet so it balances out the sweetness of the royal icing.
I follow the mixing instructions for the recipe, refrigerate for 1hr, then roll the dough between two pieces of wax paper. Once it’s about 1/4” thick, I use my cookie cutter and place on a baking sheet. You know the cookie is done when it’s just barely golden. Don’t let the edges get brown.
At the end of this post I linked a few other helpful items that you may want to add to your kitchen.
See you in the kitchen next week!
