About 7 years ago, snowflake biscuits were the first biscuits I decorated. The first batch did not turn out as well as my last attempt. However, these simple snowflake biscuits are a great option for beginner decorators because they only require one colour of icing (white) and you can make as simple or elaborate a design as you like.
You can decorate the biscuits with a pastry bag or simply cover them with icing sugar – the choice is yours. I like this biscuit pattern because it is simple and can make a great visual impression.

Easy Sugar Cookies
Snowflake cookie cutter
2 tipless piping bags
White sanding sugar or edible glitter (optional)
Bake normal sugar biscuits and cut them out with a biscuit cutter. Prepare the royal icing.
Make a very small hole (about 1/2 cm) in the tip of a piping bag (so that the icing has the consistency of a piping bag). Drill a slightly larger hole (about 1 cm) in the tip of a piping bag (to get the creamy consistency of the icing).
Fill half of the white icing with royal icing in the piping bag. Mix an additional tablespoon of water (or as much as necessary to obtain a creamy frosting) with the remaining frosting. Pour the white cream icing into a regular piping bag.
Cover the snowflake biscuits with the white cream icing. Allow to dry for 1-2 minutes. Frost with white cream icing. Allow to dry for 1-2 hours.
With the white icing, apply the desired snowflake pattern on the biscuits. If desired, you can dip the biscuits in icing sugar or decorate them with edible glitter to make them sparkle.
