St. Patrick’s Day Cookies

St. Patrick's Day Cookies

I made these cookies to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and I made them following this recipe for eggless sugar cookies.

I did not have any specific cookie cutters, so I made them by cutting out some cardboard.  I then cut the dough all around the cardboard shapes.

I decorated them with Royal Icing (you can find the recipe here) and coloured it with food colouring (both gels and liquid).

You start by outlining the shapes with a very thin line of icing and then fill it in (“flooding”).  Some people use a thinner consistency of icing to flood the cookies, but I used the same icing (a bit thicker) to outline and flood because it saved me time.  Also, these cookies were a spur of the moment idea so I did not have all the tools I needed (I only had a #2 tip and only 1 of those!), so I wanted to keep the icing types to a bare minimum.

After flooding them, I added some sprinkles to the Irish dance costumes and added the other details to all the cookies.
