Basics Cookies

Game Night Cookies

Super simple cookies made for a ‘Game Night’ at my kids’ school. Three colors of icing, if you count the white. Can’t beat that!

What You Need:
Roll-Out Cookie Dough
   (I used both my Chocolate Sugar Cookie & Vanilla Sugar Cookie Recipes)
Royal Icing
Red & Black Food Coloring
Ruler & Knife (or pastry wheel)

The playing cards, I made true playing card dimension, 2.5″ x 3.5″. And I made the dominoes the same width, 2.5″, but cut them at about .75″ tall.
*Note: You probably want to bake the big and small cookies on separate baking sheets. The dominoes may take about 8-10 minutes, where the cards take about 10-12 minutes.

Decorating the cookies is simple, outline and flood with white icing. (See my tutorial on icing consistencies here.)
I used a Tip #2 for the dominoes, and for the letters on the cards. I used Tip #12 for the Heart, Spade, Club, and Diamond on the playing cards.

They were a big hit, and really easy to do.
