No Time To Do Decorating Decorating


Author Notes: With all the holidays, my cookie baking is sometimes overwhelming. What's really tough, is the decorating part. Being a grandmother, I have a reputation to uphold with the grandkids. So I came up with this idea. (Don't know if it's been used before, but it works for me). When you don't always have the time and you want your decorated cookies to look impressive, this is what I do.knitnbead

Makes: as many cookies as you want frosted

Ingredients

  • 1 package ready made fondant (color of your choice)
  • 1-2 pasturized egg whites (I use Just Egg Whites from the grocer.) s from the grocery
In This Recipe

Directions

  1. Bake your favorite cut out cookie recipe. When cookies are completely cooled, roll out fondant according to directions make it a little thinner. (Wilton makes this, and can be gotten wherever cake supplies are bought). Use the same cookie cutter as the shape of the cookie you wish to decorate. Lightly brush your cookie with the egg white glue so the fondant will stick.
  2. Use the same cookie cutter as the shape of the cookie you wish to decorate. Lightly brush your cookie with the egg white glue so the fondant will stick. Press the fondant gently on the cookie and decorate with dragees or sprinkles. Press them very gently into the fondant so it will dry and hold the decorations in place. Looks pretty professional to me!

I will search out sugarcraft.com. The idea is not to have to make your own. Time is of the essence.

True, but you can make the fondant ahead.

Hi, hardlikearmour, <br />Thanks for the tip but I never heard of Satin Ice here in South Florida where I live. Where can I get it? <br />

If you can't get it locally, you can order it from sugarcraft.com. Another alternative would be to make your own fondant from mini-marshmallows which is really economical, and the flavor is good. http://whatscookingamerica.net/PegW/Fondant.htm

If you are using pre-made fondant I'd recommend the Satin Ice. It's flavor is much better than the Wilton product. I used the Wilton product once, and it had an off taste, almost a little fishy. Maybe it was a bad batch, but I'm not willing to try it again.
