My friend Olivia makes the most beautiful decorated cookies I have ever seen with pooled icing (check 'em out here...http://fromthekitchenofolivia.blogspo... ). I love this technique because I suck at cake decorating but have had great luck decorating cookies this way. I am looking for a tasty cutout cookie recipe. I tried biscochitos last Christmas and loved the anise taste but the dough is too wet and unwieldy for a sturdy cutout cookie. Looking forward to your thoughts!
