So, funny story… I was planning to write this post about summertime cookies, and as always, I planned to send you to Sweet Sugar Belle to see what she’s been making lately. (Cute, cute fourth of July cookies, for one!) And then I clicked on to her blog this morning, and what do I read? 20+ Ways to Use a Star Cookie Cutter. She gathered together a bunch of her baking friends and offered a “star cookie cutter” challenge, and the result is a FABULOUS array of star cookies. You know I’m sharing my favorites below (although they ALL are FAB!)
If using a pastry bag and tip for the first time – watch this terrific “how to make a pastry bag (frosting bag) and use frosting tips” video. Unfortunately you have to sit through an annoying advertisement first but the video is worth it.
From Klickitat Street, amazing rocket ship cookies. My boys would LOVE these!! Her tutorial is great, although you’ll need some skill with the icing to make them look as good as hers!
And finally, quilted star cookies from Cookie Craze. I’m partial to these because my mother is a quilter. I can’t wait to check back for the tutorial on how to make them.
This one isn’t on the Sweet Sugar Belle list, but I found a really great recipe and tutorial for Lemon Nut Star cookies from Taste of Home.
And one finally star cookie tutorial… this one incorporates really COOL “message in a cookie” cutters from Williams and Sonoma. Click HERE to read the fab tutorial from Lick the Bowl Good:
Aren’t these star cookies great!
