final thoughts on the sugar cookie

The leftover flower cookies turned into single-layer lollipops,
which was plenty of cookie, let me tell you.
The cool thing I discovered is that if you take thick royal icing,
pipe it around the edge (use a squeeze bottle for candy making,
not a cake decorating bag -- much easier on the hands!), and let it
dry, you can then thin the rest of the icing with water and "flood"
the center of the cookie. Mix up a batch of icing in an alternate
color and pipe designs on while the first layer is still wet, and it
settles in to make a smooth finish.
