Printable Cut-out Cookie Recipe (Icing and Decorating Tips, too!)

So, remember when I mentioned that at the holiday baking weekend at the Pioneer Woman's Lodge (still on cloud 9, by the way) that I put together some little handouts for the ladies?
Well, I have one for you, too!  There are 3 pages....
  1. cookie recipe for cut-out cookies with a few variations,
  2. royal icing recipe,
  3. cookie decorating tips
Two things I must say....

ONE: huge shout-out to Amy of Living Locurto for designing the cute little border around the pages.  She makes the *most darling* printables for her blog and her shop. (Like these cardinal printables....I'm in love with them.)  Thank you, Amy!

TWO: this is a scan of a print-out, so the actual print is not going to be super clear. I'm learning, please bear with me! :)  Let's be honest, it all would be perfect had I put my 11-year-old in charge instead of trying to do it myself.

OK, enough rambling....printables, people!  Have at 'em!

  14. THanks for posting this recipe - my Mom had carpel tunnel release surgery on both her hands recently (main note here, is that she only has half the strength back in her hands, so gripping pastry bags, bottles, even a hair brush is a huge huge task) and so she isn't going to make cut out cookies, but rather round sugar cookies -she wants to use an icing that's hard, but an icing that she can put on the cookies using a spreader. Would this be possible with royal icing? Is there another icing that you would recommend for this task?

  28. Bridget. I made these cookies last week Sunday and they were so awesome. I amde twenty eight and they did not last in my household of four. But today I tried making it again following wach step. And it not working. Did you sift your flour? I dont think I did that the first time. Maybe its the butter cause i think i used I Cant beleive It's Not butter today and the last time I used Land of Lakes. I cant figure what went wrong since I tried three more times but I cant get that nice almond sweet taste like the last batch I made. Can you provide any tips?

  50. Thanks so much! I can't wait to try some cookies. I haven't baked in years, and now that I'm a grandma, I'm finding more time to try again.

    About the scan into pdf... There is a nifty tool called "Cute PDF Writer" (google it) that installs on your computer as a printer, but saves a document as a pdf. So, if you already have the finished document on your computer, you go to Print and change your printer to "cute pdf" and click ok - the next screen should be a "save as" screen. Really great for things like this. (Just thought you would like to know.)

  53. I found my way here from Pioneer Womans blog - and I'm so pleased I followed that link..!! Loving your blog and your recipes -everything looks devine!! Can't wait to try a few out!!
    I do have a question though.. I am in New Zealand, and I have never seen corn syrup sold anywhere. I've just been on a couple of the really specialised local cooking/baking/kitchen/deli websites, and can't find it on any of those either. Any suggestions as to a substitute? I've never used it so I don't really know what qualities I'm looking for in a substitute. Any suggestions greatly appreciated..!!!!
