Memorial Day Cookies

filed under: Miscellaneous on May 29, 2010

Every year one of my hubby's friends has a big Memorial Weekend get together that goes from Saturday to Monday. People bring their families and their campers and tents and have a fun filled weekend of eating and playing and socializing.

So approximately 28 hours ago we glanced at the invite and realized it said, "Bring a dish to share."

So my brilliant idea was, "Oh, I'll just whip up some cookies!"

I have never been known for my intelligence.

I have been baking and decorating cookies for the last 6 hours. I have got no time left to do my hair or wash my clothes. At least my nails were already done.

The invite said, "Join us for a Weekend of Family & Friends and Campouts".



I didnt have a cookie cutter for the fire so I just made one quick.


I tried out that whole wet on wet technique that everyone else is so good at for the fire. I like it!






Quick little happy accident I have to share… I didnt have time to go and pop all the air bubbles in the logs, but I love how it seems to add texture! Its almost even better now! 🙂



I know its not technically a 'dish' to share, but I hope they like it!

And I hope you enjoy your Memorial Weekend and a BIG thank you to all the Veterans!

I used my favorite Cookie Recipe and favorite Icing Recipe.

    Did you use your signature icing for these? You’ve said before that they take a few days to completely dry – but it sounds like you only had a few hours to whip these together before it was time to pack up and head out. How did you get the icing to dry quickly enough for stacking them?

    As always, your cookies look fab.
    I love that you “just made one” for the log/fire cutter. Could you please explain that one a little more… I notice that you’ve done that before too – made your own cutters based on the need. A tutorial on that, with some photos and samples would be greatly appreciated.

    QUESTION: You say you didn’t have a cookie cutter for them so you made one. How did you make it?? Genius!

    Love the fire effect! You never cease to impress. 🙂 I’m sure this was more appreciated that a traditional ‘dish.’

    These are the cutest and most delicious-looking memorial day cookies I have ever seen. I just want to curl up to a camp fire and eat these cookies one after another.
