I show you how to decorate these adorable We Go Together mini cookies but also share the best way to package them. Check out the video tutorial for tips on how to make and package these cookies!
For these cookies I used exclusive sugar cookie recipe and royal icing recipe. The cookie recipe yielded about 35 small/mini cookies. I like a thicker cookie so I roll out my cookies to 3/8″ using my Cookie Countess Precision Rolling Pin. The thickness of your cookie will change the cookie yield.

Helpful Decorating Tips and Tricks
I like to break up the decorating process over a few days. It works better for my stage of life to do a little each day. Here is a sample timeline to show how long each step takes.
Make and bake my cookies. I do not chill my dough so usually, this takes about 1 hour from start to finish. Mix royal icing, color, and prep all the icing bags. I like to color the day before because the colors will deepen over time.
Outline and Flood Cookies. Make sure to allow them to dry in front of a fan for 1-2 hours before adding details. Add final details like airbrushing, piping and stenciling.
Always take pictures of your beautiful cookies. Make sure to allow 10-14 hours of drying time before packaging your cookies. I like to store mine on a baking pan with a lid overnight.
