I love the idea of using SI for the cookies! I have always used royal icing and it was very messy and time consuming. I love this site! Everyone is so helpful! Allow me to share......last year I opened the doors to my new cake shop. I needed a good cut out cookie recipe. I found it on allrecipes.com and it's the only one I use! The cookies are delicious! (With SI they'll be even better!) Here is the recipe for anyone who would like to try it.
