I'm absolutely sure this has been answered before but I keep running into "Post Does Not Exist" when I'm going through back pages of the forum.

I made the RBC, I'm getting ready to make the cookies. What's the best way to attach the RBC to the cookie? Right when the cookies come out of the oven? With corn syrup? I can't remember!

I use corn syrup. I have a small bottle that I keep it in that works with plastic icing tips. I bought it at the craft store originally to use with melting chocolate but found that it works great for this. But you can also use a pastry brush or your fingers to spread a thin layer on the cookie before applying the RBC. Just make sure that you do not add to much corn syrup because it will not come off of the cookie or the RBC. Good Luck. icon_smile.gif

after cuting out my RBC. I put it in the freezer while the cookies bare baking then I when the cookies are done ...then I use a small db of corn s or royal icing as glue.
