Cookie Exchange & Easy Royal Icing Recipe


I love Christmas Cookies... and love EVEN MORE a Christmas Cookie Exchange!!  I was excited to be invited to make last year's invitation, but was even more excited to practice a new Royal Icing technique I found on "Best Bites".  I've always seen the "runny" icing and wondered how they did it... then when I finally tried it, I was surprised to see how EASY it was!


Yum!  For you cookie lovers out there... 
My favorite Sugar Cookie & Royal Icing recipe cards are below:   



Need a picture by picture tutorial on this icing technique? Click HERE.
Oh, and feel free to print my cards if you'd like!

  If you like my recipe cards, you can see a step-by-step digital tutorial that shows how I did it - HERE.

Special Thanks to "Just So Scrappy"
(I used her "A Pinch of This" kit to create my recipe cards.)

I've been looking for a simple royal icing recipe. I might need to put on some Christmas music and try a batch!

Can't thank you enough. I've always been too scared to try my hand at icing, but this was almost foolproof. And the cards are just darling. I linked back to you to make sure every I know tries this.

Doesn't that just make you proud when something turns out so nice like that?!

These are adorable! And I've been wondering about that icing technique. Definitely going to be using it on some cookies I plan to make with my little guy this year. Thank you for linking up to Homemade Christmas!
