Ready to Bake - Decorated Cookies

Decorated cookies are also called iced cookies. Pretty butter biscuits decorated with royal icing and sprinkles. These make wonderful gifts that children can make and decorate for their friends or perhaps even grandparents.
Requiring a little more effort, these cookies are an activity that we suggest you spread over two afternoons. On the first afternoon make the dough and bake, and on the second afternoon spend the time decorating. There are enough cookies to feed a hungry family with some left to gift, so take some time out to have a little fun and get creative!
