Cheers!

I thought I'd post a couple beer cookie pics since St. Patrick's Day is just 11 days away. :) With it falling so close to Easter this year, I'm not sure I'll make Easter AND St. Paddy's Day cookies, but in case your plans call for green beer cookies...here's a tip.

These top 2 pictures show how I first did them. I thought a star tip would work great for the "foam" at the top. Well, I didn't love the way they turned out and this way used A LOT of icing. Near the end, I was close to praying to St. Patrick to let the icing hold out through the last cookie.

So, here's what I finally came up with. The foam part is just filled in as normal with flood icing and after it dried, I piped little curlicues for the bubbles. I like this much better.
Happy green beer drinking and eating!

  1. They turned out really really cute! I like the yellow better as it's more beer-like. You are so talented!

  3. I think we always had the day off, but not sure if that is condoned by the church. :) I'm sure St. Patrick wouldn't mind.

  8. Bridget, I sent you an email yesterday but I'm not sure if you got it or not. I looked all over town for this cookie cutter and couldn't find one so I had to order it off the internet. It probably won't be here in time for the party though.

    What recipe do you use for your cookies? (this was the subject of my email)

    Thanks!
