Haven’t been keeping the blog as a priority at the moment, I figured it was time for a pretty (well, -ish) post to make up for it.
I’m really sorry, but I do not actually have time at the moment to post the recipe for the cookies themselves (I know, how poor of me!) but I promise to sometime 🙂 It’s a really simple and easy way to jazz up your plain cookies and they do look great.
20 plain cookies
1 cup icing sugar
50 g butter
1 Tbsp icing sugar
1 tsp water
pink food colouring
Melt the butter and place in a small bowl with the icing sugar. The icing sugar should be a runny consistency, so more butter may need to be added. Colour the icing pink. Mix together the extra icing sugar and water and spoon into a small piping bag. Place the good side of the cookie facing the top of the prongs of the fork. Dip the fork into the icing so that the icing covers all but the bottom of the cookie. Take out the fork and flip the cookie onto a wire wrack so the un-iced side is facing down. Pipe stripes of the white icing onto the cookie and using a tooth pick, drag it across the cookie, at a right angle to the lines. Drag the tooth pick across the other direction, but down the cookie slightly. Do this 2 or 3 more times. Continue with the other cookies and leave them to set. Serve or store in an air tight container in the fridge.

I went for pink colouring, but you can of course do whatever colour takes your fancy!
Have a good day all 🙂
