"I've long avoided royal icing, fearing that my unsteady hand and such a precise medium would produce cookies that I wouldn't want to show anyone, let alone set out for the holidays. And then I tried Betty's recipe. Admittedly, I was talked into it, but as I worked on these cookies, I found out that even I, armed with the right recipe, can make stunning cookies that I'm proud to show off. Turns out, I love royal icing (especially when on top of tender, lemon-tinged butter cookies)!"
