I put my cutout cookie recipe to the test Tuesday
And baked up a storm!
The bunny and chick cookies that I am making as a PEO fundraiser
Put in cello bags and tied with a ribbon
An advance order because "grammy" is leaving on Friday
and needed the cookies for her grand.
(These are the first of the 700 cookies that I will make next week)
The hand painted frosted bird cookies
Placed on a doily covered silver tray
For our first meeting in April -- a champagne tea
And my contribution were these cookies.
Letters frosted in primary colors
And Little Golden Books
(both are for our library Grand reopening)
They set a pretty table
And the different cookies are because different board members
made the cookies.
The variety makes for a prettier table, I think.
The Little Golden Book Cookies and the chick and bunny cookies were frosted with royal icing. Then the details are painted on the bunny and chick cookies, while pieces of printed wafer paper top the squares.
The alphabet was frosted with my favorite vanilla glaze -- 1 cup of powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons of milk and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, mixed together and then add 2 teaspoons of corn syrup. You may need to add more powdered sugar or milk to get the right consistency. I like it because it dries hard which buttercream doesn't.
My cutout cookies are an easy recipe and a good one -- I've made literally thousands.
