Painted Cookies, Cookies, Cookies!

Airplanes, hammers, trucks, puppy dog paws, dinosaurs, rockets, trains, sunglasses, and more new cookie cutters!
I have had such a nice day.  Sunny, mild, widows open.  Lots of things accomplished.  The most fun has been baking these painted cookies with my new treasure trove of cookie cutters!  It's 5 pm and I have just finished cleaning up.  My big oak dinning table with the leaves still in from yesterday is half laden with colorful sparkling painted sugar cookies.  They are still resting from having come from the oven and I will pack them and ship them tomorrow to Chris our oldest son and the boys!  Bet they will have "big eyes" when they open this box!

This recipe is just too good not to make again and again and I do.  If you would like to try them here is the link.

Really what I like so much about them is you just paint the cookies before baking and I sprinkle with colored sugars and as they bake and puff a bit it makes an outline it is really a cute outcome for not a lot of work.  On top of that I froze the unused paint I had made and used at Easter in little jars so I just thawed them today and they were perfect.  No waste at all!  (The paint is egg and food color.)

All those from these!!

I'm sure they will have big eyes when they see these, they look amazing. If your boys are anything mine they will want to eat them all.

Hi Diane!!! I can't believe Chris didn't invite us over to help with the cookies! They look amazing.

I wanted to THANK YOU for the most beautiful apron!!! I love it. I look at the vintage aprons every time I see them - Marshalls had some a couple of weeks ago. How did you know!?!?! It's too pretty to wear, but I can't help it. It's too much fun!!

Thanks so much for thinking of me! Hopefully I'll get to see you sometime when you are up visiting!!

Take care and THANKS again!!
