Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Polka Dot Cookies

You do know I'm very fond of polka dots.  I love them on just about anything. 
So I thought why not make some polka dot cookies Mimi Sue?  OK, why not?

First you make your favorite sugar cookie recipe.



 Then you get some of these little bottles and fill them with royal icing that you tint with food coloring.  I make royal icing with meringue powder, (you can get it at Michaels or Hobby Lobby) and not raw egg whites so no one gets sick.
 Then you outline your cookie with the icing,  add a few squiggles inside the outline, then fill it in with a knife.
 Then you take some plain white icing and make the polka dots.



Then you take some of these adorable cookies to your neighbors and friends.  I'm sure they'll love you if you do.                                                       

This post is dedicated to Lisa, the polka dot queen.

I love polka dots. Those are so cute. It's time for me to move to your street. Please inform your neighbors that one of them has to move--preferably from a large house for my hoodlums. ;)
Also liking those felt hearts you made and hung from a ribbon--I'd make the same thing, but my projects don't quite turn out how they should. ha.
