Hello, 2008!

A little cookie for the new year...the dots remind me of champagne bubbles or confetti. I was going for a bright fuchsia here and I have to say that they look prettier in person, but I like the cookies from 2007 much better. Oh never know until you try.

To make them:

  1. Outline the cookie in white using a #3 tip.
  2. Thin fuchsia, yellow and blue icing to syrupy consistency and cover with a damp dishtowel. Let sit, stir gently with a rubber spatula to pop air bubbles. (Fuchsia: Spectrum Fuchsia with AmeriColor Electric Pink; Yellow: AmeriColor Egg Yellow; Blue: Spectrum Sky Blue)
  3. Pour thinned icing into squeeze bottles.
  4. Fill 6-8 cookies at a time in fuchsia. Spread into corners with a toothpick.
  5. Drop blue and yellow dots on top of wet icing.
  6. Let dry at least 1 hour.
  7. Using a #2 tip, pipe "2008."
