Baby Shower Cookies

Onesie Cookies

Things are getting crazy again around here. We're moving to a new house which is actually quite an old house. Yesterday, there were painters, plumbers and electricians there, not to mention the gas company has been outside on the street with large equipment blocking the road and jackhammering away at the side of the house. It's utter chaos. I'm trying to pack up an entire house with 10 years of accumulation almost singlehandedly. My back aches from lifting boxes and I'm not sleeping well...waking up earlier and earlier every morning (today it was 3:30!) I just can't stop my mind from racing.

There's no baking going on in my kitchen at the moment (and in the forseeable future!), so please understand if my posts are few and far between for a while. But I do have a few things I haven't shown you yet. These are cookies I made for a friend who was throwing a baby shower. I didn't want to spend a week decorating them, so I opted for simpler designs and I think they turned out pretty well.

Instead of piping and flooding the background color, I just spread the icing on with the back of a spoon. If the consistency is just right, the icing will cling to the shape of the cookie without running off the side. This saves an enormous amount of time - something I don't have much of these days!

Pretty soon, I'll give you a peek at our new house and I hope to share the process of our kitchen renovation with you along the way. Wish me luck!
