I used my favorite recipes for the cookies and icing:
The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies and Sugar Cookie Icing
We also had a special guest with a dairy allergy, so I made a batch of dairy free cookies that were super yummy!
DAIRY FREE ROLLED SUGAR COOKIES:
1 1/2 Cups Butter Flavor Crisco
3 TBSP Water
2 Cups Sugar
1 Tsp Vanilla
5 Cups All Purpose Flour
2 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Salt
Cream Crisco, Water and Sugar together. Add eggs and vanilla until well mixed. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Cover dough with saran wrap and chill overnight. When ready to bake, roll out dough to about 1/4 inch thickness, cut with a circle cookie cutter and bake at 400 degrees for 6-8 minutes. Allow to cool before icing.
DAIRY FREE ICING: Mix 2 cups of powdered sugar, 1 tsp clear vanilla, 4 tsp almond milk or soy milk and 4 tsp corn syrup until well blended. Add food coloring as desired. Add almond milk by the tsp to thin icing if it is too thick.
I decorated these pizza cookies by putting a layer of red icing in the center and letting it set, then used a squeeze bottle to squirt the "mozzarella" icing and adding a few green sprinkles before it set. Then once that layer was dry, I went back with my red icing and made the "pepperoni".
Then I just bagged them up and added a little tag I made using PicMonkey!
