Ingredients

Basic Sugar Cookie Dough
Basic Frosting
Circle cookie cutter, any preferred size
Food colouring (White, red and/or green)
1 disposable frosting bag
1 coupler
1 size “4” decorating tip
Rubber band
White rolled fondant
Wax paper
Sharp knife
Light corn syrup

Directions

  1. Prepare Basic Sugar Cookie Dough and Basic Frosting according to the recipes and cut out circle cookies. Bake and let cool.
  2. Follow the Basic Decorating Instructions to tint frosting with white colouring and prepare a frosting bag with size “4” decorating tip. Outline circles with white frosting and let set about 15 minutes. Flood the circles with thinned, white frosting and let set well, at least an hour.
  3. Knead a few drops of red and/or green food coloring into a handful of rolled fondant very well. Roll fondant between two pieces of wax paper about 1/8 inch thick. Cut out circles with the cookie cutter and let stiffen about 15 minutes. With sharp knife, cut triangles from circles and adhere to top of decorated cookies with light corn syrup. Let dry overnight before packaging cookies.  (Tip: If fondant gets sticky when kneading, let sit at room temperature uncovered for 15 minutes.)
