Memorial day celebration

Today I'm posting this great cookies for Memorial Day. These are super easy to make and decorate. 
You can use the recipe for  sugar cookies (one that you can roll out the dough) or the shortbread recipe (these will be more delicate cookies).

So lets start whit the stars!!! ;)
1. Roll out your dough 1/4 in thick, cut a strip from the middle of your cookie using a knife or pointy spatula. the strip should be pointy in one of the corners because the cookie is going to hang from a glass or a cup
2. Bake and cool your cookies (don't try to decorate them hot because it will be a mess!) 

3. Prepare thin royal icing (almost 10 count royal but for this is better a 20 count ) or melted candy in white, red and blue colors

 4. drizzle the cookies whit the three colors,  the drizzle should be thin lines

5. Finish the decoration before the royal or the candy sets with mini silver dragees or colored sugars

6. Decorate your glasses or cups with the beautiful super easy cookies!!!

7. Enjoy watching your family munching the cookies!

 8. Have a great Memorial Day.
