Henna Style Decorated Cookies for Eid
It will be Eid in a few days and my girls have been busy decorating some cookies that they can gift to friends. We followed a sugar cookies recipe, apparently these are best for decorating on.
Then I also made my own icing following instructions I found online which is meant to be good for decorating with. I chose a recipe using egg whites.
I will post the link to the cookie recipe at the bottom of the post.
Step 1: We baked the cookies and allowed them to cool down before decorating.
Step 2: Prepare the icing and divide into separate bowls and add food colouring.
Step 3: Apply a bottom layer of icing onto the cookies and allow to harden, took over an hour for ours.
Step 4: Then apply a design with a contrasting colour onto the cookies.
Allow to dry and then they are ready to eat or gift.
The photo below shows the cookies that my 13 year old daughter designed.
