Classic cut-out cookies are fun to bake, fun to decorate, and most of all fun to eat! This soft, sweet cookie has a great buttery taste that’s perfect for dunking in cocoa or eating as a treat. There’s no need to chill the dough – it’s ready to go right away. The traditional metal cutters leave crisp edges and the dough keeps its shape while baking so they’re easy to decorate with our easy cookie icing.

    How To

    Covering Cookies with Thinned Icing
    Covering Cookies with Thinned Icing

    Covering (also known as “flooding”) a cookie with thinned icing one of the basics of cookie decorating. This beginner-friendly technique involves outlining the shape of the cookie to create a dam and covering the surface with thin consistency royal icing. Piping an outline creates defined edges and holds the thin icing in place, preventing it from running down the sides of the cookie. For best results, we recommend using Wilton’s recipes for roll-out dough and thinned royal icing.
