This is another adaptation of my standard cookie recipe, which I love for many reasons. Not the least of which, because it is a wonderful reminder of the many years we baked this recipe for our Christmas cookies. It bakes beautifully and it is easy to adapt to your particular needs (even gluten free).
I have made cookies & cream macarons in the past, but hadn’t made a cookies and cream type of cookie that I could ice and decorate until now. Although I made them a few weeks ago, I wanted to get my “official taste testers” (otherwise known as my fabulous grandchildren) to review them before I put them on the blog.
The brown iced cookies have chocolate royal icing on them, and the blue ones have regular royal icing. Some testers preferred the chocolate iced cookies and some preferred the plain ones. To make chocolate royal icing I added 1/2 cup of good quality cocoa powder to my regular royal icing recipe. Either way, I don’t think you will be disappointed with this recipe.
Like my regular sugar cookie recipe, this cookie does not spread and bakes true to the shape you cut out.
Please let me know how you like it!
