I can finally day that I did a St. Patrick Day craft.
I apologize for the poor pictures but it is dark out and I wanted to get pictures taken so I could post about my cookies.
Not bad if I do say so myself for a skull turned leprechaun.
Easter egg leprechaun.
And not to be outdone, the circle leprechaun.
Are you feeling lucky?
I couldn’t decorate cookies without a little disco dust.
I made a few flower cookies out of my chocolate chip dough so it wasn’t all green.
Not as nice as I hoped but not too bad.
I think I’m just disappointed in the icing. I decided to try royal icing again. Well, a version of royal icing with a bit of corn syrup that was suppose to make the frosting a bit shiner than normal royal icing. I’m not sold on this icing. Back to the corn syrup icing for next time. I wish the corn syrup icing wasn’t quite so sweet. But then again maybe because I make a lot of chocolate chip cookies that make the cookie extra sweet. I guess I just love the shine that I can get when I use it.
I’m planning on shipping a few of these to my goddaughter at college and taking a few to share with my sisters on our crafting weekend starting on St. Patty’s day. Maybe I’ll have to see how the frosting holds up and taste tests before I completely dismiss it.
If anyone has a icing recipe you swear by please pass it on to me. I’m willing to try a new recipe and see how it works for me.
