baby shower cookies


It's been a few years since I've broke out the old onesie cookie cutter.  I'd almost forgotten how much I enjoy decorating sugar cookies (despite hours of icing turning my hand into a decrepit, arthritic claw).  For my friend's baby shower, I stuck to the classic white onesie because she doesn't know her baby's gender.

The Blonde Designs Blog has a really good cream cheese sugar cookie recipe. It is tasty and holds its shape really well while baking.  I used  Wilton's Royal Icing recipe using meringue powder for the icing.  The basic recipe is the perfect consistency for piping, and you can add a little extra water to make "flow" icing, which spreads nice and smooth for the base.


Yum! Or so I heard.  I'm still temporarily gluten-free, so I couldn't even eat one.  How sad is that?

so cute. Makes we want to run right out an attend a baby shower (having a baby to be able to eat cut cookies is too much to ask) Who do I know that's pregnant, thinking, thinking.
Thanks for sharing.

I remember that post a few years ago! Such cute cookies... I used to decorate a lot of cookies, but then when I realized that most folks eat the cookie in WAY less time than it takes to decorate it, I hung up my piping bag. Lol. What a lazy baker I am--but yours are absolutely gorgeous and I'm sure the eaters appreciated the effort!
Good luck being gluten-free!
