Sweet somethings

For many moons, I've mooned over the fantastic sugar cookies Bridget at Bake at 350 creates with a frequency that reveals superhero in the bloodline.  Ms. B not only presents elegant pictures of her cookie masterpieces, but includes how-to instructions.  All very helpful to a gal whose last attempt at decorating sugar cookies (harvest pumpkins) resulted in squash drenched in concrete. 


So, a couple of months ago I printed out Bridget's instructions.  Then I gathered up the stuff I needed to do it right.  Mostly time and an excuse to make them.  But you know me, I can whip up a holiday in celebration of a root canal.


And in the time it takes to diagnose, conduct and recover from a root canal, I managed to pipe in some love and affection.  We're told that "love is patient."  This cookie project most definitely proves the point.  I just might need a root canal to recover. 


I hope you're gettin' some sugar tomorrow, hopefully brought to you by Russell Stover.  Or, if you're lucky, Godiva.  Maybe not cheaper than the butter and eggs option, but much, much faster.  (:

I had a wild plan to bake sugar cookies today. I couldn't fit it in. Reading your account of what's involved makes me glad I spent the day with other pursuits! Those sure look lovely though.

They are sooo beautiful! How do you get the circles of color within the icing? Are you hiding an airbrush gun somewhere??

I'm treasuring mine. I think they are honestly too pretty to eat and I don't say that lightly. Love you and your delightful holiday obsession.

The lacy effect on the edges is so gorgeous! I wish I could do something like that.
