Also, scrape down the sides and the bottom using a rubber spatula. And be sure to beat again to combine properly.

Step 3

Then, add your dry ingredients with wet ingredients. Afterward, set your mixer to low until well combined. Also, if your dough is too sticky and soft, add a tablespoon of flour and knead again.

Step 4 

Next, split your dough into two parts. And be sure to place each part into a piece of lightly dusted silicone mat. Afterward, dust your rolling pin using flour and roll out your dough into 1/4 inch thick. Remember, you can add more flour if your dough is sticky. Also, do the same process with the second part of the dough.

Step 5

Afterward, lightly dust one of your rolled dough with flour. And make sure to place parchment paper on top. Also, place the second part of your dough on top. Then, cover your dough with plastic cling wrap and refrigerate for one to two hours.

Step 6

Start preheating the conventional oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, line your 2 to 3 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Afterward, gently remove the top piece of your chilled dough from the refrigerator. Also, use your cookie cutter of the same size as your photo. And ensure to cut your dough. Then, re-roll your dough scraps and cut more. In addition to that, repeat the process for the second part of your dough. Also, re-roll the dough scraps until you don’t have anymore. 

Step 7

Ultimately, position your cookies 3 inches apart onto your baking sheets. Then, bake for about 11 to 12 minutes. Or bake until light golden brown around the edges. Afterward, allow your sugar cookies to cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes. And be sure you transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

For the royal icing

Step 1

Place your powdered sugar, meringue powder, and nine tablespoons of water inside a mixing bowl. Then, whisk ingredients at high speed for about a minute and a half to two minutes. With this, make sure to utilize an electric mixer. When you lift the whisk off the icing, the icing should drizzle down. Likewise, it should smooth out for about 5 to 10 seconds. 

Step 2

If the icing becomes too thick, be sure to add a tablespoon of water. Make sure to do so until you attain the right consistency. And if your icing is too thin, add more powdered sugar. Then, divide your royal icing into how many colors you want to have. But make sure to leave one part of uncolored icing. Afterward, place your uncolored royal icing inside a piping bag. And your colored icing into different piping bags with a small tip of your choice.
