Let's get started!
- Preheat oven to 325ºF.

- Shape the dough into 2 disks about 1 inch thick. Wrap the disks in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
- Working with one disk at a time on a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough about 1/4 inch thick. Cut out cookies using a plaque shaped cookie cutter and place them 1 inch apart on the baking sheet.

Time to decorate!
- Print the Wonder Woman Insignia template and then tape a piece of wax paper over it. Trace the design onto the wax paper with black royal icing (PICTURE at 3:10).
- Once the black icing has dried, fill in the design with yellow icing.
- Pipe a blue outline onto the top half of each cookie. Use red royal icing to pipe the outline of the bottom half and then fill in each outline (PICTURE at 3:39).
- Once cookies and insignia have dried, pipe a dab of white royal icing to stick an insignia onto each cookie.
