Easter Cookie Fun



We had a day of Easter Cookie making fun!
We just love to play together in the kitchen
and cookie making is the perfect thing to do.

I have been wanting to try Fancy Flours edible
images for decorating cookies, and we finally
got around to doing it.



I ordered these vintage images,


and these innocent bunny ones.  They create
cookies that are works of art.

They really are fun and easy to do and 
Fancy Flours sends them with instructions.
I combined their instructions with some things
I learned at Cookie Con and had great success.


Make your cookies using your favorite recipe.  
After they cool frost them with Royal Icing.


Here is the trick that I learned at Cookie Con - 
rather than waiting for them to dry overnight,
dry them for 20-30 minutes in a food dryer, then
the frosting is hard enough to work with. 

There is no way that I could wait overnight!!



Cut the edible papers out to fit.  Have them slightly smaller
than your frosting surface as the papers don't really bend
down the curved edge of the finished frosting.  (I made
that mistake!)

Brush them with light corn syrup, being sure not to get
any on the front surface of the image as that will smear
the image.


Place on the front side of the cookie, smoothing down and 
then turn over for ten minutes to keep the image smooth as
it dries.  Fancy Flours gave this instruction, and it really
helps the edges not curl.



Decorate the cookies as desired.  I added pastel
Disco Dust to the edges.


I had also watched a video made by
Arty McGoo, whom I met at Cookie Con 
on hand painting cookies with food coloring
 with her swirl method,
 so my daughter Jessica
and I tried our hand at that and loved it.  Even her
three year old daughter Jacquelyn got into the fun.


The cookies will be part of our Easter Dinner.

Let us all rejoice in the joy
of Easter, as we celebrate
the most important event in human
history - the Resurrection of the Savior of Mankind!

What joy and hope that brings!

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.

  2. Beautiful cookies, Jackie. The freehand ones are so dainty looking.
    I wouldn't have thought to use the food dryer, what a great idea...because when I am on a roll, I hate having to wait too long, I get distracted and end up losing interest!
    Happy Easter.
