1 batch brown sugar cookie dough 2 batches royal ic­ing food colour­ing of your choice (we used dif­fer­ent shades of pink)

1 Pre­heat oven to 140°C. Pre­pare the cookie dough and roll out to 5mm thick­ness. Cut into 7cm bauble shapes with a cookie cut­ter. Place on bak­ing pa­per lined trays and make holes in the tips with a skewer. Bake for about 20 min­utes or un­til dry to the touch. Cool on the tray.

2 Pipe out­lines onto the cooled cook­ies with royal ic­ing. Set aside to harden. 3 Squeeze out re­main­ing ic­ing and thin out with a few drops of wa­ter un­til it has the con­sis­tency of syrup. Set aside ½ of the ic­ing. Di­vide the re­main­ing ic­ing be­tween 2-3 bowls. Colour each to your pref­er­ence and spoon into sep­a­rate pip­ing bags fit­ted with small round noz­zles (in­clud­ing the white ic­ing). 4 Work­ing with 1 cookie at a time, flood the cook­ies in­side the bor­ders with the white ic­ing. Add dol­lops and stripes with the coloured ic­ings and drag a tooth­pick through to cre­ate pat­terns. Set aside to harden. Re­peat with the rest.
