I was making final plans with a girlfriend this morning for a playdate we’re having tomorrow. She casually mentioned that tomorrow is also her birthday!!

So! I knew I would love to bring her some cookies.. but I had ZERO time to do them as my in-laws were stopping by this afternoon and my house was still in major need of attention.

I decided to try out an idea I have been throwing around for awhile.


You know I love polka dots.

But did you also know about my love of cherries? Not actual cherries. Those I cant stand.

But cute little sew on cherries or greeting cards with cherries or sweet little baby onsies with cherries.

That is my bliss.


I used this sugar cookie recipe.

And this sugar cookie glaze icing.


I have never been super good at that whole ‘wet on wet’ technique… but since I had so little time it actually worked out pretty well!



I hope she has a great birthday tomorrow!


These are so fun and easy to do… and the potential color variations are endless!

I hope you will try them yourself!

Share with your friends!

  1. Cherry prints are my favorites! I can’t tell you how many onesies, t-shirts, dresses, skirts, and hairclips my girls have had with cherries on them!! I’m a total sucker for cherries! Those cookies are perfect!

  2. I love this design! Did you use your Sugar Cookie Frosting and
    Sugar Cookie recipe? How long does the frosting take to get hard? Thanks!

  3. I love your design! These are soooo pretty! I love polka-dots and cherries too! I love the actual fruit too…:) You are very creative!

  4. Those are too cute for words!!! Love the blue background…reminds me of a fabric I saw that I LOVE….now if only I could sew something. Guess I’ll have to stick to baking! 🙂

  5. GORGEOUS color combo, and beautiful execution. But where did the cookies come from on short notice?? You got them in the freezer? If so, how long will they stay good there? (Sheesh, must I *always* have questions?)

  6. I have been blog stocking you for some time and I have never left a comment…..well I can’t not say anything after seeing these cookies. They are about the cutest thing I have ever seen. You are very talented.
