Monogram Cookies

purple monogram cookies

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!
