Lately my sugar cookies have been getting soft after I ice them with royal icing. I haven't been doing anything differently so I'm not too sure why this is happening. Sometimes they get so soft that when I pick them up from the sides I can feel the cookie get squished. It's definitely not normal. 

My cookies usually get iced in the afternoon and then I let them dry overnight. 

Does anyone have any advice or know why this is happening? Thank you!

I just read the responses to this question today on the website    She has some great ideas and tips on making and decorating sugar cookies and shortbread cookies.
