Argyle Neck Tie Cookies


I don't own a kopykake so creating certain designs on cookies can be a pain. Today I wanted to share with you a really simple technique of creating a piping guide directly on a cookie, using a piece of paper/plastic and a food pen.
A perfect example is argyle design, one would think you can just pipe those perfectly even diamond shapes by hand, well maybe you can but I can't so I made a little template to help me along.






To make these cookies you need:
  • Bake the cookies.
  • Using a simple plastic or  a paper template  and a food pen, draw a piping guide directly onto the cookie.
  • Starting with white icing(using  10 second icing), fill the diamond shaped areas, following the argyle design pattern,  and the piping guide. 
  • Fill in the white areas, let dry. 
  • Fill in the red(using 10 second icing) areas, let dry. If needed use a toothpick or a pin to push the icing into the hard to reach corners. Let dry.
  • Using a grey or black icing pipe the clean lines across to finished the argyle pattern.
  • Pipe the red outline and let dry.
