Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
The easiest way to decorate cookies with royal icing is to dip them. This method serves as a great base for all kinds of embellishments. Prep a thin royal icing, place it in a shallow bowl, then dip the top of your cutout cookies into the icingódone!

From here, you can set the cookies aside and let them dry completely or keep decorating while wet.
