May Flowers!


Its been a long, dreary winter.

I dont remember looking forward to Spring so much! To welcome Spring I whipped up a simple but delicious batch of flower sugar cookies with icing. For "leaves" I dyed the dough with a bit of food coloring and used a mini heart shaped cookie cutter. Turn the green hearts upside down and they look like leaves! : j

I found a simple great recipe from all recipes: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/the-best-rolled-sugar-cookies/Detail.aspx


The icing was just as simple! You need two different consistencies of icing 1. piping icing which is a bit thicker and is used to outline the cookies. and 2. flooding icing which is used to fill in the outlines made by the piping icing. 

I love youtube and found a wonderful "how-to" video on icing cookies. 

Here it is: 





cookies and cold, yummy milk!
