Decorate your cookies! It's nice to have an inexpensive set of paint brushes to use with this icing. Cheap brushes can generally be found at dollar stores or in the children's section at craft stores. Tooth picks work well for drawing fine lines, dots, or text.

Share your cookies with someone special for some sweet snacking!

You could use a small spreader knife for large areas of color and a toothpick for details. The dots and lines on the cookies pictured were done with toothpicks.
