Total Time: 92 Minutes, Servings: 46 Servings

Ingredients :
  • 1 batch Simply Perfect Chocolate Sugar Cookies (with 1 teaspoon peppermint extract added to the dough), baked and cooled completely
  • ROYAL ICING
  • 2 tablespoons meringue powder
  • 5 tablespoons water
  • 2 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • Additionally- gel paste food coloring and a few teaspoons more water to thin the icing to the proper consistency.



Instructions :
    TO MAKE THE ROYAL ICING
  • Place the meringue powder and water in a large bowl and whisk until all the powder has dissolved and the mixture is frothy.
  • Add the powdered sugar and stir until combined.
  • Whip on high speed until the icing is very fluffy and stiff, about 5-7 minutes. It should hold stiff peaks.
  • Transfer to an air-tight container until ready to tint and pipe.
  • TO TINT AND THIN TO PROPER CONSISTENCY:
  • Spoon about 1/2 cup of royal icing into a small bowl and add a few drops of gel-paste color. Stir in until desired color is reached. (Some colors, such as red and black, will deepen over time.)
  • Add water, about an eighth of a teaspoon at a time, until the icing is the consistency of Elmer's glue. It should smooth over on its own after a few seconds.
  • Place in piping bags fitted with decorating tips, and turn them tip side down into a drinking glass lined with wet paper towels.
  • Use immediately. (Royal Icing will become thin and runny, and may separate, over the course of about 24 hours.)
