Remember Bridget? She was one of the featured guests on my series Five Sites That Inspire Me. She decided to participate in Drop in and Decorate this year. So of course, I had to tag along and join in the fun!
Drop in and Decorate is all about community… (from their website)
Our mission is to build bridges of caring and respect between groups within their own communities. We do that with cookies, and we work to make cookies-for-donation events easy and affordable for any individual or group who would like to decorate and donate cookies to a nonprofit agency serving basic human needs in the own community.
The charity that I chose to work with is called Nokomis (from their website), and it’s through the Village Family Services in Fargo, ND.
…this program fills a need for families with special needs, both financial and emotional. Nokomis provides a place for all children to thrive and grow…
I was SO excited to be able to make cookies for kids!!
Cause, see, I sorta love rainbows.
And kids loved rainbows.
I decided to go with an alphabet theme.
After I finished then, I got all worried it was not as fun as I hoped.
Then Colton came in the kitchen and squealed with delight.
What do you think?
I couldn’t resist spelling out LOVE! :)
Here they are!
Here is the recipe I used for the cookies:
I used my famous GLAZE recipe: Sugar Cookie Glaze recipe. This hardens and stacks well (as you can see in the picture below) but does not get rock hard. It also tastes amazing!!!
And you know I couldn’t resist making some rainbow cookies.
And this is only 10% of the Decorated Sugar Cookies we are making… we have 200 more to go!
