To be honest, this was one of the main reasons I bought an icing printer. Saint cookies have been on my mind for years now.
If you don't have an icing printer, don't worry. Scan the images you want, format them to fit your cookies and take your file to the grocery store bakery or local bakery supply shop to have your images printed.
These are going to kiddo's teacher.
Here's what you need to make them:
- an awesome aunt who is sweet enough to scan and email you a zillion saint cards
- frosting sheets
- white royal icing
- #2 or 3 tip and #16 star tip
The cookies look cute plain, but I really like the something extra a little piping adds to them. I added the border with a #16 star tip.
Did they all turn out perfectly? Well, no.
You might recognize the guy on the left.
St. Marguerite. When my Nana traced our family tree she found we were related to her. Which is obvious given my saintly nature.
My favorite saint? St. Bridget (or Brigid), for obvious reasons. BUT, when the priest who married us gave me a copy of this prayer attributed to her, well, it sealed the deal. It's a must read.
Here's St. Lucy...
Yes, those are her eyes on a platter. You guys, the saints are interesting!!!
Do you have a favorite saint?
