Ingredients

Instructions

  • Roll out your cookie dough using a rolling pin and cut out twelve diamond shapes using a diamond-shaped cookie cutter. Bake according to recipe directions.
  • Before you begin decorating, you must ensure your cookies are fully cooled. The best way to achieve this is by using a cooling rack which cools the cookies throughly fast from both above and below.
  • Roll out the purple and yellow fondant with a rolling pin so that they’re each about a quarter of an inch thick.
  • Using the same diamond cookie cutter you used to cut the diamond-shaped cookies, cut out six diamonds of each fondant color.
  • Cut each fondant piece in quarters using a paring knife. Press each one onto each cookie, alternating colors.
  • Roll out twelve spheres from your black fondant, about a quarter of an inch in size. Then, roll it out so that each one is about three inches in length.
  • Press your black fondant “string” onto the end of each cookie.
  • To make the bows for the cookies, roll out small spheres from each color. You’ll need 18 spheres of each color. Shape 24 of them, forming them into triangles and place 2 on each cookie.
  • Press a sphere in the center of the two triangles – now, you have formed your bow.
  • Serve and enjoy!
