WINTER COOKIES/ Polar Vortex 2

I wrote about the Polar Vortex and Arctic Blast in previous winter posts. Well, it was baaaccck ... and thankfully lasted only one week. With half of the country still caught in the deep freeze and snowed in, it’s the perfect time to get cozy indoors. Light a fire, munch on your favorite snacks (don’t count the calories), snuggle under a blanket and binge watch your favorite TV show or catch up on your movie watching before this weekend's Oscars.

These cookies were decorated using stencils and airbrushing. For texture royal icing was applied with a paintbrush.
(Every step in the process was not photographed; see example airbrushing tutorial here)
