Silly turkey cookies


What did the turkeys say to the pilgrims?

I mean, can you blame them?

Tartan plaid Christmas cookies

Holy cow, these took me
to make.

It went something like this:

FIVE colors of icing,
FOUR cookie cutters,
THREE cups of coffee,
TWO Aleve tablets,
ONE very, very, very, sore hand!

Time for Christmas cookies!

Whether you like traditional cookies,

or a little shabby chic pastel,

a winter wonderland,

or cookies to leave out for Santa,

I think we can all agree that

Happy Independence Day!

Long may she wave.

My heart is with our soldiers and veterans today.

Have a "capitol" 4th!

Wood and lace cookies

Two of my favorite things in decorating are wood and lace.

These cookies were all about trying out a couple of new techniques.
Swirling two shades of brown to get a wood grain effect,

and using a a very small icing tip to create the look of crochet.  

The lace was seriously painstaking to do.
My hand was saying "ouch" after only a few cookies.

Maybe one of these days I will learn how to crochet with yarn, but until then I will settle for using icing!
