Those of you who have followed my blog posts will know that I make my own cookie templates. I use the same templates for cutting out the dough and for icing the cookies. You may refer to this blog post for making and using homemade templates. I also use the same cookie recipe over and over again because I have always received rave reviews for the taste. Please refer to this post for the cookie and royal icing recipe.
Just to share some pictures of the process...
Cutting out cookie dough using homemade templates
The darker brown spots on the dough is due to the type of brown sugar that I used, Masarang Arenga forest brown sugar.
A lower glycemic index sugar that tastes awesome and has vitamins and minerals!
Halfway done with icing!
All packed and ready to party!
These cookies can keep for 1.5-2 months so they serve very well as door gifts!
