Another Eggperiment

Last week when I was playing around with the bunny cookies, I also tried something new on some egg cookies.
I bought these stencils awhile ago, and had never used them. So I thought they would be fun to use on the egg cookie. On Pinterest, I saw a post with some beautiful cookies that used stencils. The only problem with the post is it was in another language and I could not read it. Thankfully I could understand basically what to do from the pictures. So the first step was to lightly brush some shortening over the stencil.
I sprinkled the cookie with some disco dust. I recommend doing this over a paper towel so you can tap the excess off over the towel and then fold the towel up to create a funnel to pour the dust back into the container.
Sorry for the blurry photo. I was in a rush and this goes to show that it's a good thing my hobby isn't photography.
Now because I was in a rush, I didn't let my royal icing completely dry on the cookie. And because of that, my stencil sunk into the icing. To cover that mistake, I piped some royal icing to hide the cracks and ridges I created by not having any patience.
Here are the cookies I made while playing. It was fun and my family enjoyed eating all my creations.

  1. Kris,
    All of your creations turn out so well. I know I am you Mother and one of your biggest fans, but I REALLY do think you make the cutest things. I love the egg (surprised I didn't say the bunny, aren't you). It is a perfect cookie for Easter. Bet Mary would like it!! Keep up the good works. Thanks again for the cake pops. They were delicious. Love MOM
