Animal Baby Shower Cookies

filed under: Miscellaneous on August 18, 2010

This must be the summer of babies, because I have been making Baby Shower Cookies like crazy.


This was theinspiration.

I went pretty literal.






These are hard to see… I used the light tan to write "Congratulations" around the edge of the 'Christina' cookies.





Will be back in a bit to share more cookies for a fun event I attended here in Minnesota!

*For these cookies I used my favorite sugar cookie recipe and special glaze icing.
