  • I'm pretty sure this cookie is for the North Carolina Tar Heels.


    I have never made anything North Carolina related.

    I live in Minnesota. And prior to that North Dakota. And for one short year in DeLand, Florida.

    I dont even think I know anyone from North Carolina.

    So yeah, finding a Tar Heels cookie cutter…well, not so easy.


    Lucky for you (because I know you have been dying to make your own NC cookie) I made a tutorial over at the University of Cookie.


    If you would like to know just how I made this cookie and just how easy it is, just stop by and see my QUICK tutorial.

    It basically just tells you how to make any "cookie cutter" at home!

  • Becki D says:

    Hey did you do these with “real” royal icing instead of the glaze icing you usually use? If so, how do you decide which one you’re going to use on a given project? Thanks, friend!

    i live in NC now but am from VA and went to VT (a much easier cookie to make). the company i work for is based out of MN (it is a growing company so a lot of people moved down from MN to start up the plant.) i found your blog a while back and though “man, everyone lives in MN”. although i am not a unc fan, they are pretty awesome cookies =)
