Sixtieth Birthday Cookies

I made some cookies for Sally’s sixtieth birthday.

The request was, “black, hot pink, white, classy, birthday”

I used this sugar cookie recipe and this glaze recipe.


I found a picture of a flower that I liked so I made a rough sketch of it.

I have no idea if it’s classy or not… asking me to define classy can be hit or miss.

Mostly miss.


Then I tried something new.

I think the cookies are ok but they did not turn out like I had hoped! The swirly outside design is actually continuous “60’s” around the edge.


Can ya see it? (I feel like I say that a lot)

It might have turned out like I had envisioned if I had a steadier hand… this is one of those designs that might work better with more practice.




Happy Sixtieth Birthday Sally! Hope you enjoy your cookies!
