Easy Christmas Lights Cookies

2 min read

My daughter and I fell in love with these! “Nailed It” was our inspiration; it was the show we were watching as we baked! So much fun! Pleasantly surprised with the royal icing as I’ve never made it before. Complimented the cookie well.

I’ve never made royal icing, except to hold a gingebread house together – huge batch! Thank you for the small batch recipe! Will make this evening with my (3)2 and (2)6 year old daughters. We’ll have a blast and can have earnest discussions about the world or silly discussions about nothing
