A coworker asked me if I did decorated cookies and I cringed. I explained to her that I did have an awesome recipe, Wilton's Sugar Cookies with the best icing, Cookie Crazie's Corn Syrup Glaze Icing. However, to make them, it was a royal pain with really great results. This did not deter her. So, then I explained that for the time and effort the cost would be pretty high. She asked, "How much?" I gave her a quote and she said "Let's do it!" Alrighty then...
While rolling out the dough to me is such a pain, it is really worth the effort, every few years.
My task was to make and decorate 25 cookies however I wanted. I cut out 30 cookies with the anticipation that there would be a few casualties. Decorating cookies requires a lot of piping bags and lots of tips! I did have one break in the baking process.
For the decorating I did the black first then the inside of the glass with the finishing touches in white. Not bad for my first real attempt at decorating cookies. While packaging I did have several casualties. Grr! Mr T and Miss E graciously tested the broken ones.
I made a double batch of the dough to make some Thanksgiving cookies as well for a family dinner. Those results will be in a couple of posts.
