watercolor name cookies

Beautiful watercolor paint effects on white royal icing make for a cookie that is festive yet elegant. Vary the script style for a more informal presentation, or experiment with a monogram. These cookies are so fancy you can even use them as place settings for your brunch!
Step 1
Quantities Needed:
2 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
½ Tsp. No-Color Almond Extract
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
1 Egg
3¼ Cups All-Purpose Flour
1 Tsp. Baking Powder
½ Tsp. Salt
1 Cup Butter, Softened
 
 
Prepare cookies according to recipe instructions.
Step 2
Roll out cookie dough and use 3¼" cutter from set to cut out each cookie. Bake and cool cookies. 
Step 3
Use the fondant roller with pink guide rings to roll out fondant 1/16" thick. 
Step 4
Using the color combinations provided, mix Color Dust™ edible decorating powders to make pink, yellow, purple and green decorating powders. Use a decorating brush to brush each randomly in patches across the white fondant.

TIP: Combine White and Deep Pink decorating powders to get pink color shown. Combine White, Goldenrod and Lime Green decorating powders to get yellow color shown. Combine White, Periwinkle and Purple decorating powders to get purple color shown. Combine White and Spruce Green to get green color shown. 
Step 5
Using the same 3¼" cutter, cut fondant circles and attach to each cookie with piping gel. 
Step 6
Prepare royal icing according to directions on package. Place ¼ cup in a disposable decorating bag fitted with tip #3, and pipe names on each cookie, widening the letter width on the down strokes. Let dry for 1-2 hours.
