Rustic Patriotic Tag Decorated Cookies (Tutorial)

I love the rustic look so much! Before I started these cookies, I had a technique in mind to try.....and in the middle of the experiment, I accidently scraped some of the color off the top  of the cookie and realized.....THAT'S IT! That's the look I was going for. :)

To make tag cookies, you can use just about any shape and then use a straw to cut out a hole on one side of the shape. For these particular cookies, I used the tea bag cutter from That's A Nice Cookie Cutter designed for me to complete the Tea Time for Mom Decorated Cookie Collection. It has a tag hole built right into the cutter. 

Once the cookies are baked and cooled, brush dry chestnut and caramel elite colors over the top of the cookie surface. (see photo below)

Combine a small amount of vodka (or clear extract, i.e. almond extract) with royal blue and red rose elite dusts separately to make blue and red "paints".

Brush the paint roughly over the cookie making sure it is not uniform in order to give it that rustic, primitive look.

Then....here's the fun discover......use a small knife or thin flat surfaced tool to scrape random parts of the painted color off the tag.

Also, if you'd like to add a shape on top of the tag, find a correctly sized mini cookie cutter and press it into the still wet "paint" to make an impression you can use later to pipe the shape with glaze. (see photo below)

Allow the cookie to dry for at least an hour and then outline and flood the shape over the top of the painted surface.

If desired, you can add an aged-look to the piped shape once it has dried overnight by brushing it with dry brown dust.

Red, Black, & White Cookies: ONLY Three Colors of Icing :)






I'm not good at limiting how many colors of glaze I make for each set of cookies.
Rarely do I make less than 6-7 colors in any collection.
But I was intrigued with the idea of using just THREE colors
to make as many patterns and textures as I could think of.

I was astounded at how much I loved making this set.
Of course.....the three vibrant colors of red, black, and white are distinctive on their own.
But the "simplicity of color" does something crazy with the brain. haha

This is one of my favorite sets of cookies ever. :)

I'll be doing this again......for sure!
