Daisy Doodle Cookies!


Time to make the Daisies!
I found some pretty ribbon at Walmart 
a couple of months ago.
I've been wanting to turn them into cookies ever since.
Sometimes, things I envision do not turn out as I'd like them to.
Yes, my *daisies* are a little wonky...
but I still think they're cute and...
I love the colors!
I'm a little hooked on colored dough..so today we're going with green..again!
 I use a non-stick rolling pin.
 .........................................
 Some of the stuff I use.
I mix my royal icing with colors in my trusty Campbell's soup mugs. I use a butter knife to mix them..i feel that I'm stirring in less air, which means less air bubbles to surface on your cookie.. I may have learned this years ago in a Wilton class.
I use these icing bottles to *flood* my cookies..I really need to buy some new ones with the upgraded nozzles. I also prefer disposable icing bags.
 ( I really hate dislike washing them)
