Ingredients

Directions

  1. Mix together 1 cup royal icing with the pink or green food coloring until desired shade is reached. Transfer to a small squirt bottle fitted with a thick tip. Outline cookie with pink or green icing (see template). Draw several zigzags across entire surface of the outlined area. If necessary, use a toothpick to spread evenly.

  2. Mix together 1/2 cup royal icing with the lavender or yellow food coloring until desired shade is reached. Transfer to a small squirt bottle fitted with a thin tip. To create details on the one-piece, draw lines using the lavender or yellow icing to create neck, sleeves, and leg holes (see template). Using tweezers, add silver dragees to create snaps (see template) and a sugar candy to center of one-piece (see template). Let cookie dry completely before serving, wrapping, or using as an ornament.

Cook's Notes

To turn these adorable cookies into a charming centerpiece, simply place flowering branches in a sturdy vase. Wrap cookies in cellophane bags and ribbon, and hang from branches. At the end of your party, add signage that instructs guest to undecorate the tree and take a cookie with them.
