After my last post I just simply had to come up with a reason to try those sugar cookies with royal icing. What better reason than the "Manning-Bowl" today. So I made sugar cookies with Martha Stewart's recipe.
And baked them . . .
And then I frosted them . . .
A close up. I LOVE it.
And don't forget the footballs . . . we must have them.
Not to mention the Jerseys. Complete with player names. Yes, I got a little carried away . . .
I just couldn't resist. It took a long time, but was totally worth it. If you'd like to see how they are done, go to Brown Eyed Baker's site, she gives a tutorial.
And in case you are wondering how they taste . . . ask my husband. I think he's eaten half of them already and they've only been done for a day.
