When Cristin Of Cristin's Cookies announced that she was hosting a "Hello Kitty Cookie Challenge", I thought it would be a good time to use my new Hello Kitty cookie cutter. (Click on the link for some cute Hello Kitty cookies.) Thanks for the challenge, Cristin! It was a lot of fun!
It also gave me the perfect chance to make another cookie on a stick~which I have a fondness for:) This cookie has been up my sleeve for awhile.
I think this bow cookie would be so cute at a Hello Kitty birthday party. All the party-goers could hold the bow cookies up to their heads for a cute photo-op:) Too bad one of my darling granddaughters isn't nearby to model it for you. (The baked cookie is 4.5 inches x 3 inches.)
I had a much harder time with the bow on this cookie, but the technique from Sugarbelle(and her picture-perfect Hello Kitty cookie) sure helped out! Thanks, Callye!
These cookies are sugar cookies with royal icing.
For the bow, I found an image of Hello Kitty on the internet and enlarged it to use as a template. I traced it onto a file folder, cut it out, placed the template on the cookie dough and cut around it with a small paring knife. I inserted the cookie sticks into the cookies after they were placed on the baking sheet.
I'm really pleased with the way the bows turned out! :)
