I debated about whether to post these cookies because they turned out kind of funky and silly, but then again, April Fool's Day is all about silly isn't it?!? These cookies definitely fit the bill. Or maybe I'm just making a fool out of myself:)
I spied a fun April Fool's Day place setting in Phyllis Hoffman's Easter Issue of Celebrate magazine, where the classic plastic disguise glasses(big nose attached to black glasses) were used as the napkin rings( in photos above and below). Isn't that a cute idea? I immediately thought of making them into a cookie version, and went to work right away on fashioning a template. They didn't turn out quite the way I envisioned(they need more nose detail to start with), but they are still a fun, tasty cookie. I used a small biscuit cutter to trace the opening for the glasses on the template and then punch out the center of the dough. The hole seemed to bake inward in the oven though. I used these recipes for the cookies and royal icing.Callye!). I added a lollipop stick in case someone wants to disguise themselves, but it would be just as cute as a regular cookie at a place setting, especially with the plastic version nearby.
Have a fun April Fool's Day!
