I used my trusty cookie recipe, and added some dye.
For the frosting I decided to not use royal icing but a different kind, it's called Glace Icing, and I found it on Our Best Bites site. I like to add more powdered sugar to make a thicker icing.
1lb powdered sugar (about 3 3/4 C) plus 1 cup
6T whole milk (low-fat actually works, but use whole if you can)
I also used some of the royal icing decorations I made a few weeks ago, they were perfect for these cookies!
Start with some dough and coloring
Put a big schmear of icing on the dough
Let's try a different color
My cute new beehive cookie cutter,

I love my carrots!
I let the cookies be the star, not the frosting
