Every party needs cookies,
don’t you think?
Baby Showers are no different
and today it’s time to celebrate!
Stephanie of Back for Seconds just had a baby boy and to welcome her new arrival a group of bloggers are getting together to throw her a virtual baby shower today.
I’m not sure why but I just love red white and blue for babies, the colors area bright and timeless. No matter their age, they don’t grown out of that soon, which I think makes it perfect for babies. Cute little cowboy or cowgirl theme is just so adorable, bandanas and all.
My Italian Cookie Recipe is my go to cookie recipe, I just love how wonderful the cookies bake and they taste delicious. I rolled the cookie dough 1/4″ thick for the smaller star cookies.
Here is a link to the Printable Star Template the giant star cookies. I cut out the star I printed onto paper then traced that image onto a flexible plastic cutting board and then cut that out.
I place the template onto the cookie dough I rolled to 3/8″ thick using a sharp pairing knife, I cut along the edge of the template to make a large cookie. I also used this when making Giant Gingerbread Cookies.
I outline and filled the cookie with royal icing I tinted light blue and flooded them in and allowed them to completely dry before applying sprinkles.
To edge the cookie with nonpareils, I outlined the cookies when the base coat of icing was dry and then dipped the cookies into the nonpareil sprinkles.
I use a shallow dish to dip the cookies into.
( taking photos while doing this is not easy, I kept spilling the sprinkles all over)
Let the icing dry where you applied the sprinkles before stacking.
Giant cookies are fun to present with a tray of cookies, I wrote on the giant star cookie with an edible marker.
Congratulations to Stephanie and her family on her sweet baby boy!
