I love the look of Royal Icing and this recipe is the best, but I also really love frosting on sugar cookies so I made these into “sandwich” cookies and then decorated the top. Go HERE for the Royal Icing Instructions. I used that exact recipe and then added just a few drops of water as I added the green gel coloring so that it would drizzle a little bit easier. I loved these trees because I didn’t have to follow any perfect lines, just zig zagging! For the cookies I used a great recipe I found HERE at “allrecipes.” They puffed up just a little but really kept their shape well!
