My sweet Erica loves her middle school teachers and wanted to give them something for Teacher Day. I was not going to make all 6 of them wordart like I did for Aaron’s teacher, so she decided to make star cookies on a stick.
(Please ignore the extra crumbs on the yellow cookie! I forgot to take pictures of the “good ones” that we actually sent to school…these are the leftovers!)
It took us a couple of nights to do this, first to make the cookies and then another night to decorate them and wrap and tag them. We used a Wilton cookie sheet with the star shape and cutout for the stick.
We also used their recipe for the cookies. I was a little nervous about how they would turn out, the dough was so-o-o-o crumbly. And the cookies felt so heavy I figured they would be like rocks. So, of course, I had to try one 🙂 They were awesome! Very soft on the inside, just enough crunchy on the outside. It might have also helped that we used pure vanilla that a friend gave us from their cruise to the Bahamas, that stuff smells divine!!!
Until next time…
