You may remember the post I wrote about the teapot cookie cutter I got at Home Goods a couple of weeks ago. It's been sitting on my kitchen counter patiently waiting to be used, so yesterday was the day! It's a Robert Gordon cutter from Australia, and I like it very much.
I'm going to be having a very special tea party later this week [which I'll definitely be blogging about], so that's what motivated me to bake a batch of sugar cookies and decorate them. I forgot that making cookies means spending an entire day in the kitchen, but the end result was worth it.
I took a class in cookie decorating and assembling cookie bouquets in 2005, and made several bouquets for centerpieces at a ladies' spring tea at my church. I must have I burned myself out, because these are the first decorated cookies I've made since then! I wondered if I'd remember the techniques, but it all came back to me.
Cookies cooling from the oven.
Finished painted cookies.
While I was at it, I decided to make some teacup cookies to go with the teapots.
And since it's almost St. Patrick's Day, some Shamrock cookies too.
