Filling our 'piping bag'....

    Although my sister has a lot of decorating supplies - pretty tips and piping bags - that I could have used, I wanted to show you how you could decorate cookies with just what you have on hand.  Once you're baggie is filled with frosting, squeeze the air out and seal them, and push the frosting to one corner of the bag.  Twist the top of your 'piping bag' and snip off the pointy end of each baggie/
