These cookies are super cute and really easy to make. They require a little preparation but they are worth it! Here’s how it’s done. I found a cute font on Microsoft Word and printed out a whole sheet of the letter “D”. Then I whipped up a batch of royal icing. I placed a sheet of parchment paper on top of the computer printout. Using white royal icing, I carefully piped each “D” and immediately sprinkled with white nonpareils. These letters need to dry for at least 24 hours.
While the letters are drying, mix up a batch of your favorite sugar cookies and bake. Color some royal icing; I made a light and dark purple. Once the letters are dry, use a palate knife or offset spatula to carefully release the letters from the parchment paper. Get ready to ice! Working one at a time, pipe purple royal icing onto each cookie and immediately drop a letter into the center of the cookie. Quickly pipe white polka dots around the cookie. Allow the cookies to dry for at least 24 hours. I love the 3D effect of these cookies and can’t wait to make them again…Order them for your next occasion!
