My first try using royal icing to my cookies 


For cookie dough…

  • Cup flour 
  • 1 tsp baking powder 
  • 1 cup unsalted butter 
  • 1 cup white sugar 
  • 1 large egg 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract ( I use clear)
  • Raspberry jam for filling 

For royal icing……

  • 3 tbsp meringue powder 
  • 4 cup powder sugar 
  • 5 1/2tbsp warm water 


  1. In separate mixing bowl whisk together the flour and the baking powder and set aside.
  2. Then using the stand mixer or hand mixer beat the sugar, butter together until mix well. Then add the egg and vanilla mix again.
  3. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture one cup at a time. Mix until the dough begin clumpy. If your dough still crumby continue mixing.
  4. Gather the dough in work surface and knead with hand until nice and smooth. Roll into a ball wrap with plastic wrap and pop up in the fridge to chill for around 20 minutes. Need the dough become firm but not hard.
  5. Roll the chilled dough at your desired thickness and shape. Cut the dough I used 1 1/2 inch round cookie cutter and a small heat cookie cutter for the heart design in the middle of cookie.
  6. The bake the cookie at pre heated oven at 350F for 7 to 8 minutes then let them cool before piping the royal icing.
  7. While the waiting for the cookie completely cool it’s time to make the royal icing.
  8. In a mixing bowl sift the powder sugar and meringue powder then add the warm water and beat at low speed using the hand mixer or stand mixer for 7 to 10 minutes or until icing forms peaks.
  9. Then put raspberry jam on the cookie for the center small heart and pipe the royal icing on the cookie you can make your own design.

Note: keep utensils completely grease free for proper icing consistency.for this cookie I used thinned royal icing.
