I was really looking forward to making these cookies again. The last time I made them was for kiddo's First Communion....FOUR years ago.
OK...thanks for letting me reminisce.
For the cookies, you'll need:
- chalice and host cookies
- royal icing tinted with AmeriColor Gold, Bright White, Regal Purple and Leaf Green
- disposable icing bags
- squeeze bottles
- decorating tips (#1 & #2) and couplers
- gold luster dust
- vodka (yep.)
- small paintbrush
Thin the white & gold icings (reserve a bit for later) with water, a little at a time, until it is the consistency of thick syrup. Cover with a damp dishtowel and let sit several minutes.
Stir gently with a rubber spatula to pop any large air bubbles that have formed. Transfer to squeeze bottles.
Let dry at least one hour.
Let dry overnight, or at least 6 hours.
All ready for First Communion!
