So many times a design calls for an embellishment or fondant overlay to be 'glued' to a cookie. Most bakers use a simple syrup to attach a fondant bow or a royal icing accent. But have you ever thought to add just a touch of flavor to the mix?
Jams can be sieved and mixed with boiled water to coordinate with the flavor of the cookie. Apricot is a mild neutral flavor that doesn't interfere with vanilla cookies. Simply add apricot jam to a small amount of water and strain to remove any small bits. Then brush the glaze onto the cookie where needed. You will love the hint of flavor and your guest will be wonder what makes your cookies so good!
