Yes you can use royal icing to pipe on cookies, not just flood (thin it down for a smooth finished) them.
I've always used the above recipe. You can also add in extracts like vanilla, just make sure it is alcohol based and not oil based.
Thank You very much for the quick reply going to go try My first royal icing cookies .....Wish Me luck ...Trying piping for thr first time
I made some hobbie horse cookies with royal and after flooding I used the star tip to make the mane and tail swirly and it turned out good! Make sure your consistency is correct.
I don't think royal icing tastes bad. I use it on cookies all the time, and people seriously rave about them.
The best royal icing I've ever tried is Alton Brown's recipe on food network. Seriously, it is a step above all others I've had. Give it a look.
One of my students substituted vanilla flavoring for the liquid in royal icing and the taste was incredible.
