Open the cookie package and get them laid out. Then I googled some snowflake patterns to get an idea of what I wanted on the cookies. I decided to create a few different snowflake patterns.
Open the gel icing and start drawing your snowflakes. This frosting looks a bit like toothpaste, but is really sparkly on the cookie. It's important to have a steady hand, since it is easy to mess up the lines. I found holding the cookie while I drew the snowflake with the frosting worked best.
That's it! I laid out these Snowflake Cookies in a Christmas Tree pattern on my plate and let the frosting dry for a few hours. The frosting did get less sticky after an hour or two, but it did not completely harden.
