Owl Cookies

You will need your desired colors of royal icing and some big sugar eyes.  Typically you can find these at most stores that have cake decorating section.  I have seen quite a few different variety packs at Meijer recently.

The best method for sugar cookies is to outline the cookie first and let that dry.  You can also outline any sections where colors will change.

After the outline is dry, go back and fill in the large sections and plop the sugar eyes in the wet icing.  This will set the eyes as it dries so that you do not have to worry about them moving if you need to stack cookies.

As a last thing, put in yellow details for the feet and beak.  Allow the cookies a couple hours to dry completely.

You can find really cute owl cookie cutters on amazon if a local store does not have any in stock.  Use with your favorite sugar cookie recipe and royal icing for tasty and adorable party treats!
