Here's the final result of my baking/decorating session for tonight's cookie exchange.
Just plain old sugar cookies made a little special with the addition of some royal icing decorations.
I know I'm crazy because I love very detailed and tedious work such as this. I also love hand sewing, making the tiniest stitches.
Three batches of my sugar cookie recipe netted me 180 cookies, more than I actually needed. There were actually a few more but they were broken and had to be eaten. You know how that goes.
My high school math teacher is probably laughing up in heaven as he sees me do the math, especially after I announced to him that i would never, ever need math in real life.
180 cookies x 42 swipes of icing for each snowflake......
7,560 swipes of icing.
Well, now you know why my piping isn't exactly perfection.
Thanks for following along on my cookie baking adventure.
