Decorating your Christmas Ornament Sugar Cookies

Ingredients & Supplies

  • 1 batch of sugar cookie dough, cut into ornament shapes with christmas cookie cutters & baked

  • small bowl
  • toothpicks
  • 2 piping bags fitted with #2 tip

Christmas Ornament Sugar Cookies

Directions

  1. Begin by dividing the royal icing and coloring 2/3 of the icing red with the gel food coloring.
  2.  Next, fill a piping bag with red royal icing and another with white.
  3. Carefully pipe the details for the white part of the ornament as shown.  Add the outline to all the cookies before moving to the next step.
  4. In a small bowl, mix 1 cup of white royal icing with water to create the “flooding” icing.  Using a small spoon, “flood” each cookie with white icing, keeping it within the white outlines you created.
  5. Flood only a few cookies to a time, sprinkling the wet royal icing with the clear sugar crystal.  If the crystals are added while the icing is wet, they will be held in place as the icing dries.
  6. Next pipe a red outline around the center portion of the cookie.
  7. After you've outlined all of the cookies with the red,  mix 1 cup of red royal icing with water to create the red flooding icing.  Using a small spoon, “flood” each cookie with red icing, keeping it within the red outlines you created.
  8. As you flood the cookie with the red icing, use the piping bag to add a little red detail to the white ornament top as shown above.
  9. Once the red icing has mostly dried, use your piping bag to add white details to across the red part of the ornament.
  10. Let the cookies dry completely before serving.  The cookies are so beautiful they will make wonderful gifts for those special to you!
