Every year, I make my sister’s fiancé, Mark, ginger snaps. It’s his favorite cookie. His favorite animal is a penguin, so this year, I decided to mix it up a bit and make him gingerbread penguins. I used a gingerbread cookie mix (the shame!) and decorated them with royal icing.
3 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/4 t cream of tartar
2 egg whites, beaten
In a bowl, sift together sugar and cream of tartar. Using electric mixer, beat in 2 beaten egg whites for about 5 minutes or until mixture is thick enough to hold its shape.
