Decorating Christmas Cookies

Today my mom taught me the art of cookie decorating.
Let me tell you what, it is life changing!
I'm never going to look the same way at a sugar cookie.

This one is my absolute favorite.
It's of our pup Oliver Winston.
Even though it's simple, I absolutely love this cookie!

To decorate the cookies we started by outlining the cookies with royal icing.

Then you let it sit for 30 minutes to harden up....torture!
After 30 minutes of waiting and being full of anticipation, you get to use flood icing and fill in the cookie!

Then you can use other flood icing colors and add dots!

And then jazz it up with some sprinkles while the flood icing is still wet!
Too cute!

Here is Annie concentrating hard on her cookie.
She is so talented!

Here is a Bell I decorated.
Don't be too was my first time!

We made so many cookies, I don't know what we are going to do with them!
This is about 1/4 of the cookies we decorated!
