I used Alton Brown's sugar cookie recipe HERE and Wilton's Royal Icing recipe HERE. I did add 1/2 tsp. of clear vanilla for a little extra flavor in the icing. We used these for a bridal shower favor.
To make these take home favors, I added the personalized toppers to the cello bag packaging. Print these 4" x 3" graphics onto cardstock and cut out, then fold in half. You could also use scrapbook paper for this. I printed the names/circle onto cardstock and punched them out using a 1.5" scallop circle punch. 4" x 6" cello bags are the perfect size to hold a large or 2 smaller cookies. Fold the top over and staple outer edges, add the topper and staple in the middle. Using double stick tape, add the personalized circle to the center to cover the staple.
