Bake your cookies. Roll out chilled dough according to recipe. Cut out squares, then with a knife or a pastry scraper, cut the squares in half to make little rectangles. Bake according to the recipe and let cool completely.

Frost your background. Prepare frosting and mix some (about a cup, depending on how many cookies you have) white. Prepare frosting bag with coupler and size "3" tip, fill with about half of your white frosting and tie closed tightly with a rubber band. Pipe a rectangle outline on each cookie and let set about 15 minutes.


Thin remaining frosting with water, a few drops at a time, until the consistency of thick glue. Using a small spoon or butter knife, pour a little bit of frosting on each cookie and let spread to edges. (Because the cookies are so small, this was pretty easy. I just used a little knife, took a dab of thinned frosting and sort of spread it on each cookie.) Let set well, a few hours or overnight.


Write your words. When the white background has fully dried, write your words with the gourmet writer.
