I found this recipe on Pinterest and loved that it took only a few ingredients. I followed the recipe exactly as written. These cutie patooties added just the right splash of color our cookie platters needed. I am glad this recipe made the final cut in my 2012 Christmas Baking Madness. The recipe on Pinterest used red, green and tealish colors for the icing. I went with blue balls because, well, it’s funny! Yep, I’m that mature at times, LOL!

Frost icing using a pastry bag (or a Ziploc bag with the corner cut off) Cookies are fragile and should not be heavily handled.
