If there was ever a "Cookie Decorator Hall of Fame", Nancy would be it's first inductee! Thanks for the link, kneadacookie. I love re-visiting and seeing her cookie art.

I have a dirty little secret... I have some of those overalls in the freezer still. Every once in a while I thaw one out and share it with my son! They are so good. We lay waste to 'em!! icon_lol.gificon_redface.gif

I can't even wrap my head around the fact that these are handmade cookies!

Mel... I noticed you said you dont like the meringue powder in the RI, but want an icing that dried firm to stack. Try this one. A friend of mine sent me the recipe so Im not real sure where it came from.

1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon clear vanilla or lemon juice or almond extract
3 teaspoons water
2 1/2 teaspoons light corn syrup (for shine)
food coloring
water or sugar, for consistency


Mix together sugar, flavoring, measured water, corn syrup, and food coloring.
Slowly add enough water to make frosting a spreadable consistency (should be thicker than Elmer's school glue).

If a strong color is desired, decrease water so that the food coloring doesnt make frosting too runny. If you get the frosting too runny, add a little powdered sugar.

Spread on cookies (add sprinkles or other toppings immediately). Allow to dry about 30 min or until no longer sticky. Will set up into a glaze so cookies wont stick together when stacked.

This recipe makes about 1/2 cup of frosting (about enough for one color).

I know, right?? My theory is that she is actually a robot with incredibly real human characteristics! Naw, I can't even joke about that, not with her amazing heart. She truly is a sweetheart. I just adore her. We were really excited when Equus came to New York, we were going to go until we saw the price of tickets! WHEW!!!! Maybe not. icon_eek.gif

Bad girls!! I know why you were going to see that play! And you were going to leave the rest of us out??!! I still have the picture!!!!! thumbs_up.gif Let's hope they put it out on DVD. But will we have to buy it at one of those scary stores where people in trench coats shop?? I don't own a trench coat!!! icon_cry.gif


Seriously, though. I know you don't want to spread her business, Melvira, and I'm not asking you to. But can you at least tell us she's o.k.? She's such a nice lady, if she's having trouble we'd at least like to know to send her some good thoughts and prayers.

She hasn't been on since the move. She just misses her 'home', ya know? She was there for a long time, and it's always rough to move away.

And yes, her cookies cost a pretty penny because they are so amazing.

I have to get my son ready for his speech appt, but will pop in later to make sure I answered all q's!!

Are you making them cold and baking them hot? That helps prevent spreading. Also how much leavening are you using in the recipe? That has a bearing on how much spreading you will have also.
