We have hesitated to post this cookie. We keep thinking it's maybe not the fairest cookie in the land BUT there's something we really like about it. Maybe it's the colours or maybe it's the shine... Or maybe we're just delusional. :)
We're still experimenting after all. The Birds-at-our-feeder cookies were iced with a new recipe. It's Cookie Crazie's recipe. Sort of. After the tooth-crunching experience with the Snow Dudes, we decided we'd like to try a recipe that didn't include egg whites. Cookie Crazie's recipe is simple. Where we think we may have messed up is that she says if the icing is too thick, you should add more corn syrup. When we mixed it up, we thought water might be the quicker thinner. And it was! However, the icing dried with weird cloudy patches. And now we know. Cookie Crazie said "corn syrup" for a reason. When will we learn? (That's rhetorical.) January Sunset is iced with corn syrup enhanced icing.
If you're into cookie decorating, you can find her recipe here. And, even if you're not a cookier (how cool is that for a job description?) take at look at her cat cookies. (Scroll to the end of the post.) They are adorable!!!
