Instructions

  • From a chilled sheet of cookie dough using the plaque cookie cutter as a guide, cut around the plaque with the paring knife to make the cookie ½” larger than the plaque all around. Bake and cool the cookies according to the recipe instructions.
  • Ice the top portion of the cookie with blue 15-second count consistency icing and a decorating tip 2. Use the scribe tool or toothpick to evenly distribute the icing.
  • Immediately fill in the lower portion of the cookie with light green flood consistency royal icing and a decorating tip 2 and use the scribe tool or toothpick to evenly distribute the icing. Allow the icing to dry about 6 hours.
  • Mix green food coloring with a few drops of vodka or any flavor extract to dilute. Apply the edible paint with a decorator brush.
