Homemade Cookies

June 8, 2008

These photos were taken at my parents’ house last week, as my daughter was decorating homemade cookies. Just looking at these cookies makes my teeth ache. My mom took a cookie decorating class and learned to make icing. In my opinion, the icing is better suited to being photographed than to being eaten.

    LOL! Mom, we still love you… but really, lay off the whole “I can make frosting!” thing, OK? πŸ˜€
    From Texas, those look like some mighty fine cookies to me! And what a lovely cookie decorator, too! However, I’m far too familiar with those aching teeth you talk about… so I guess I’ll just have to admire those cookies from a distance!

    Your daughter did a good job with those sprinkles.
    i love sprinkles on stuff, but i don’t like to eat them.

    The cookies look really well done. Your mom did a good job.
    i love baking, too. And decorating cakes which i’d love to do for a living but crazily, it’s a tough biz to get into. Not many places are hiring cake decorators at the moment and when they do, these places tend to hire from schools. i can understand but if they’d just give me a chance!

    Anyway, your photos’ve inspired me to break out the flour.

    Yum, I wish I had one of those for an after-lunch treat. Sore teeth and all.

    I might have to get out the cookie cutters and make some. *sigh*

    Thanks for commenting, Lofter! Enjoy from a distance.

    Christine, ugh, you are so right about sprinkles. They are essential to decorating, yet add nothing to the experience of eating. Well, I am glad that the photos were an inspiration!

    Kemi, what cookie cutter shapes do you all have? These cookies are actually really good without icing. I eat them before they get decorated.

    I have an old milk crate FULL of cookie cutters in all shapes and sizes. I’d like to say they’re organized by theme (holiday, animal, shape, etc.) but they’re just a big, jumbled mess. I’m going to delude myself into thinking it makes the whole cookie experience more fun when you have to go searching for a cookie cutter you like. πŸ™‚

    My mom and I used to decorate cookies for easter. I don’t think we did it for any other holiday. It was fun at first, but we’d always be trying to make so many that it became a chore after a while! And we never did as pretty a job as these!

    They really were more fun to look at than eat. I seem to remember nibbling on the cut out edges. Enough of that gives you a tummy ache as well, I seem to recall! πŸ˜€

    Kemi, a milk crate is a great way to store them. That’s the way they are at my parents’ house and I agree with your theory that it’s more fun to search for them in a jumble!

    Deb, lol, we make cookies at least once a month. And my daughter is always asking when is it going to be Valentine’s Day or Halloween. Right now she understands a little bit about months, but it is hard to wait for a special occasion.
