Cornhole. Bag Toss. Bags. Tailgate Toss.
However you call it, this outdoor game is a staple at BBQs, campgrounds, and tailgate parties across the country. This fun game is great for kids and adults alike, and you can even customize your Cornhole boards and bags. Speaking of customized Cornhole boards, how about some custom COOKIE Cornhole boards and bags to sweeten game day? Using some simple cookie cutters, with a small tweak, you can earn bragging rights and win the day with your own Cornhole cookies!
Potted plants. Macramé art. These flashbacks from a 1970's-era living room are trendy again! And how do we celebrate home decor trends? With cookie-fied versions, of course! These hanging macramé plant cookies are made with a simple cutter that's found in many cookier's cutter arsenals- an ice cream cone shape. Let me show you!
Message boards are trendy right now in home decor. From words of encouragement to snarky statements, message boards give a perfect outlet for our thoughts. Real message boards are pretty simple: pleated felt fabric in a frame + plastic letters that are pushed into the pleats. That's it! Cookie message boards can be much more complicated if you try to pipe every pleat. The look of a pleated board can be made quickly with an airbrush and the flat edge of a stencil, without having to pipe every pleat or worry about cratered sections.
I love adding texture to cookies. Texture introduces a new dimension to an otherwise flat cookie. Don't get me wrong- there's great beauty (and great skill!) in making a perfectly flat, flooded cookie. But my heart will always be drawn towards texture. And an added bonus of textured decoration? It can hide flaws in your icing!
These royal icing poppy flowers can be lovely accents for cookies, cupcakes, and full-sized cakes for Memorial Day celebrations. Since they are royal icing transfers, they can be made weeks/months in advance. Or you can speed up the drying time by using a fan on low speed or a food dehydrator.

Tequila. Salt. Lime.
Putting together a collection of cookies for a Cinco de Mayo birthday created a challenge. I wanted to include this quintessential indulgence in the set of cookies, but I didn't have a shot glass cutter.
Cutter flips to the rescue!
Ice cream cone cookies are a staple for sweet summer-time events, and you don't need a heat wave to make drippy ice cream cone cookies. Best of all, you can make an ice cream-inspired cookie using whatever shape you like! These cookies were for a sweet first birthday party, hence the "1" shape. No matter what shape you use, you can make some great drippy cones with this technique!
These tri-color flower cookies are the perfect way to use up leftover dough and icing! They're created by layering different icing colors in a single decorating bag (versus striping the inside of the bag with colors). Best of all, you can make them with whatever icing colors you have on hand! In this case, I had leftover red and navy blue icing- perfect for a patriotic platter of cookies! Deeply tinted icing is tough to re-purpose into another color because it's already saturated with food dye. So why not use it up to make some small treats to share with friends and family?
Yard Maintenance: One of those grown-up tasks that both my husband and I dislike. Between pulling weeds and trimming with the weed-whacker, we would much rather spend our weekend afternoons doing something other than yard-work. It was a glorious day when our eldest child was old enough to work the lawnmower, and we happily pay him a small fee to take care of the grass cutting chore. Unfortunately, pulling weeds is akin to pulling teeth- you literally can't pay my kids to do it. I'm not looking forward to the day where the voluntold help no longer lives under my roof.
Muwhahahahahaha! These Mad Scientist cookies were inspired by something else I made...
I'm Amy. Wife, Mom, former science teacher- and now full time cookie baker on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Pull up a chair and we'll create! I'll bring the coffee- maybe Mike (The Cookie Widower) will make it for us.
