We bake a lot of cookies here in the Southern Living Test Kitchen and one of my favorite decorating techniques is a wet on wet icing technique. It makes a really beautiful cookie that is sure to make your cookies the talk of the town. So, to do this technique, you want to take a cookie that has been cut out, baked and cooled. And you want to put it on a sheet of parchment paper to catch any icing that may drip-off a bit. And the first we're going to do is flood the cookie with a royal icing that's a little bit of a loser consistency. This icing is made with two pounds of powdered sugar, four teaspoons of meringue powder, and three quarters a cup of water and you just mix that together so you have a nice smooth consistency. And then fill your piping bag or a Ziploc that will work too. And the first thing we're going to do is pipe a ring of icing all around the edge of the cookie. And when you get to the beginning where you started, just keep going in kind of a spiral pattern towards the center until you've covered the entire surface of the cookie. And now what we're going to do is we're going to take a toothpick, and swirl it around in this frosting starting all around the edge just like we did when we were icing it, to make sure that the layer of frosting is smooth and even. Great, so now the fun part. Now, we're going to decorate it. So, I have another color of icing, the same consistency as the first one, the same wet consistency and we're just going to pipe this in a design directly over the wet frosting that we just put on the cooking. And what you can see happens is the wet frosting kind of sinks into the layer of frosting that's already in the cookie and it almost looks like we painted the cookie. Just for fun, let's do another color, and that's it. That's all there's to it. You want to let this cookie sit for about an hour so the icing can dry and then you can stack them and take them with you or you can eat them at home.
