Marbled Star Cookies

I came across marbled star-spangled cookies on Sugar Spun Run (link below) and wanted to make these cookies for July 4th. They are so pretty and sort of messy to make, but fun. I have been planning on using the marbling technique and this was a great holiday to do it. This is a great recipe to do with kids. For the Funfetti Cut-out Cookie recipe, go to my Firework Cookies post. Marble Glaze Icing recipe and instructions below.

Lovely designs

Divide glaze into four containers with lids.

Use one bowl at a time and dip toothpick into gel colors and then into glaze and swirl with Wilton Scribe Tool or a toothpick to make a pretty design.

Make each container a different variation of color with more red or more blue if you wish. That is what I did since I wanted various designs.

Make sure cookies are on wire racks in cookie sheets for icing overflow.

Dip cookie into glaze, swirl around, and place on wire rack.

If you wish, add Wilton Edible Accents Silver Stars and repeat until you are done.

Making star shapes in dough

Once cookies dry, take a brush and gently add a little Wilton White Luster Dust on cookie. Do this by flicking the brush with your finger over the cookie. Repeat until you are done dusting all the cookies. This is optional but makes the cookies shimmer.
