Bunting Cookies

I originally did this post as a guest spot on another blog, Craftstorming, back in September.  The premise was to bake something inspired by a sewing project.  I thought that now would be a good time to share these cookies on my own blog.  I am ready for spring, and that's what these cookies bring to mind.  
My daughter sewed a colorful bunting for me back in the summer and I have it hanging in my kitchen window.  It adds a lot of cheer to the room and makes me happy. I knew this bunting would provide all the inspiration I needed to transform a sewing project into a baking project.  I was right!
The variety of colors in the stitched bunting translated into some brightly colored cookies that were very fun to make.  I chose two different designs for my bunting cookies. The scalloped, square sugar cookies were decorated with a base of white royal icing and then the colored bunting was iced right on top of that. The other sugar cookie is more of a "double-decker" cookie (a phrase originally coined by Bridget of Bake at 350).  I baked little triangle cookies  (I used a small diamond cutter and then cut the diamond in half), iced them, and adhered each to the large cookie with royal icing for the bunting. It was pretty easy-peasy.
Perhaps I will make some for another season or holiday with coordinating colors.  These paricular colors would definitely be fitting for spring, summer or an Easter celebration.
I hope you enjoyed looking at these cookies as much as I enjoyed making them!  Perhaps they will tide you over until springtime actually arrives, or they may just cause you to have a case of "spring fever"!  In that case, you will definitely need to make your own bunting cookies:)

ENJOY!
