Tar Heels Cookies

filed under: Miscellaneous on September 14, 2010

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!

    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 =)
