Cindy Lou Cookies

We usually make all sorts of sugar cookie shapes, Santas, Christmas trees, stars, stockings etc. The hard part about decorating that many different kind of cookie shapes is that you have to make a LOT of different colored icings. This year we tried something different with our decorated sugar cookies. I found these great ornament cookie cutters at a pastry supply store. They make a nice size cookie. I decided to go with 5 different icing colors. Deep green, lime green, red, magenta and white, it sort of reminds me of Cindy Lou Who colors. We outlined the cookies in a heavier icing, then filled them with a more liquid icing, then ran a toothpick through the colors. It made for some really different patterns and gave the cookies a fresh modern look.
