Our Mary..taught us how to paint cookies a number of years ago now..I still enjoy the process..I wanted to make a few for the tree:) and as gifts..I used fondant this time instead of icing..I wanted to do them NOW:)
They are so much fun to do..you simply use food coloring..and paint away..I used the sugar cookie recipe from my previous cookie post ..
While painting them I imagined what Ronelle,Susan,Carol,Mary.. and Marie.. Monica..etc..would paint on them~
All would be exquisite.
I am not a painter.I wish I was:)
Trop "le fun" !!
Enjoy..Just bake sugar cookies that hold their form well.. once cooled put a bit of corn syrup on your cookie and place the thinly rolled fondant you have cut with the same cookie cutter.
Chose your designs..and paint.I find it easier to look at a picture or photo and paint.I can't paint from my head~
Thank you Mary..
My wording ..is a take on one of my favorite poems..one part of it..Paul Verlaine~1844~1896
Voici des fruits, des fleurs, des feuilles et des branches
Et puis voici mon coeur qui ne bat que pour vous.
Here are some fruits,some flowers,some leaves and some branches..and here is my heart that beats only for you~
You can see some previous cookies I painted here
Probably a few more..But these are to give you an idea of how versatile and how much fun they can be~
