Vintage Milk Bottle Cookies How-To

You Will Need:
Vintage Milk Bottle Wafer Paper Set
No Fail Sugar Cookie Recipe
Royal Icing or Fondant
Milk Bottle Cookie Cutter
Edible Clear Writing Gel
– Wax or parchment paper
– Small craft scissors

Instructions:
1. Use No Fail Sugar Cookie recipe and cut out your milk bottle cookie shapes. Bake and cool as directed.

2. Ice each cookie with 1 layer of white royal icing as shown. Let completely dry.

3. Cut out and adhere red fondant shapes for bottle caps and labels.

4. Carefully cut out wafer paper shapes using craft scissors, making sure each one will fit on the cookie. Be careful, wafer paper is fragile!

5. Adhere each wafer paper cut out to a cookie shape by adhering a thin layer of edible clear writing gel (or light corn syrup) to the top of the red fondant circles.

6. Flip each cookie face down on a piece of wax paper to dry for about 30 minutes (this will keep the wafer paper shape flat).

7. Flip cookies over and store in an airtight container.
