Spring Garden Cookies
Make one batch basic sugar cookies and one batch royal icing. You’ll need a rectangular cookie cutter, green and pink natural food coloring, powder food coloring, or gel paste food coloring, and small round piping tips.
1. Prepare cookies per recipe instructions.
2. While cooling, prepare royal icing. Transfer half to bowl and thin slightly with water, then transfer to piping bag. Divide remaining icing between two bowls and tint it light green and pink; transfer to piping bags fitted with small round tips.
3. Using white icing, outline and fill in the cookies; let set. Once set, with colored icing, pipe stems and flowers on each cookie and let set.
