Apple Cookie (Tutorial)





To make apple cookies you'll need:

  • Apple-shaped Cookies
  • Red 10-second Glaze
  • Electric Green 10-second Glaze
  • Medium Brown 10-second Glaze
  • Dark Green 10-second Glaze
  • Cake Tester (or other long super thin stick)
  • Paintbrush
  • Almond Extract
  • Americolor Gels (red, brown, white, electric green, & leaf green)

Outline main part of apple. 
Allow to dry a few minutes and then outline/flood the "top back" part of the apple.

Once the top has dried for 20-30 min, use a cake tester
or other long skinny stick to make a stem indention in each apple.

Allow the outline and top to dry for an hour or more to prevent bleeding.

Once the outline and top are good and dry,
add the stem, leaf, and flood the main part of the apple.

After the leaf has dried for about 30 minutes, 
use the cake tester to add lines and dimension.


Allow cookies to dry overnight.

By using a palette, mix several shades of red and green
to add highlights and accents to your apples.
It helps to thin out your colors a little with almond extract.

Mason Jar of Flowers Cookie






I had fun with a new cutter from Ecrandal. :)
I got the 5" canning jar from them and added dough to the top for the flowers.

HINT: They have free shipping right now!


Made for a friend, Charlene, who was retiring after 38 years (!)
as an ICU RN at the hospital where I work.



 Congratulations Charlene! 
I think you're awesome. :)

CookieCrazie Chatter......Friday, August 24, 2012




I guess I'd say this CookieCrazie Chatter is mostly for my OCD tendencies.
Some how recapping my week helps me see what's been accomplished
regroup a bit.....
and TRY to slow time down just a bit.
I know......CRAZIE thought......but it's me.

Another week has slithered away. And we are rapidly heading into FALL. 
Even though that makes me incredibly happy.....
it also alerts me to how quickly things are passing by.

Enjoy the moment......it's only here, for.....well.......a moment. lol

Personal Side

Everyone's settling into a new routine.
My baby girl, Allison, started college on Monday.
It's been an emotional week for her (LOTS of changes),  but I think we've survived. ;)

I've been busy making an assortment of cookies.
Yesterday was a WHOLE day of decorating. I LOVE those kind of days.

Our family has some fun things coming up soon.....can't wait to share.

Here's some Instagram pics from the week....

My baby girl off to college.....


Cookie dough in the refrigerator begging to come out to play. :)

Pumpkin Spice (non-dairy) Ice Cream.......yummo!

It's beginning to look a lot like.......................FALL! :)

BRP Box Shop is letting me do fun experiments again.
We're getting ready for CookieCon. Can't wait!

New CookieCon t-shirt......required a new hair style. lol

Yeah......it only took me two tries to get those apples
to look just like I wanted them to in that basket.

Time to add the finishing touches to this week's bounty of cookies.
