When my friends, Hani (Haniela's) and Beth (Hungry Happenings), invited me to participate in this Summer Picnic Party I was tickled!
Initially, a lot of grandiose ideas ran through my head, but I finally decided on something relatively simple, but cute.
This was the first time I used this cookie recipe, but have not included it because I did not like the way the dough handled. I followed the recipe exactly, but it was not dense enough so it was difficult to make the dough into "ropes". You can see what I mean in the above photo.
Even so, after freezing these for a couple of hours it was easy to slice the "logs" into cookies. At this point I was still crossing my fingers that they would turn out satisfactorily.
Adding the royal icing grass and ant details really pushed the fun factor of these cookies up a notch or two:)
Though I consider the end result of these cookies a success, next time I will either use a favorite sugar cookie or checkerboard cookie recipe if I decide to make them, and you should too:)
These cookies have put me in the mood for a real picnic, and I think I will take these along for dessert:)
Thanks so much, Hani and Beth, for inviting me to this picnic!
