Pirate Cuties

I feel like I have been slacking on my blog entries lately. I assure you it isn’t for a lack of baking…more like a lack of hours in a day.
Here is one of the projects I was able to check off my had on my endless to-do list.
Some cute Pirate cookies for a birthday party…
I would usually do the bandanna of these cookies in red, but the little guy whose birthday these were for will not eat anything with red icing…not for any reason you might think, just because he doesn’t like red…isn’t that funny? So he got pirates with blue bandannas, which I thought turned out equally as cute.
Hope everyone is enjoying their summer as much as we are enjoying ours!

    Oh, these are so cute! I tore a picture of a pirate face out of a kid's magazine months ago for my "cookie idea file." I think yours turned out even cuter than I was picturing!!!

    Therrien-thanks for visiting my blog! Also…here's my deal with icing. I use royal icing (with meringue powder) and did post the recipe I use most frequently…just click on "royal icing" on the side bar in the index and you'll find it there. Sometimes, though in a pinch a use powdered sugar, light corn syrup, water and vanilla…I eyeball it because I have been doing it for so long…it is easier to make and dries nice and smooth for flooding the cookies, but not as hard as the royal with the meringue powder. I hope that helps!

    Those are cuties! Isn't that funny that he doesn't eat anything red?

    I know what you mean about needing more hours in the day!

    These are too cute!

    You should do a step by step process on icing sugar cookies. I want to make them, I really do, but it intimidates me. I read Martha's Cookie book on sugar cookie cutouts and it seemed SO complicated and time consuming. If you already have this somewhere on your blog, will you kindly point me in that direction?

    Thanks, Monica

    Monica, thanks so much for your sweet comments…and no, I do not have a step by step tutorial, but that is something I am in the process of putting together. In the meantime, check out Bridget's blog "bake at 350" and she has some great instructions…and some really beautiful cookies too!
