Baking Cookies Decorated Cookie Collection

Baking is a true passion of mine.
I've made baked goods all my life.....and my adult kids request certain favorites even now.
I no longer eat grain-based desserts.....but I sure love to pour my heart into making them for others.

This collection of cookies was created to reflect all the joy that comes from taking single ingredients and making something that brings joy and a smile to the recipient. :)

CookieCrazieBasics: Sugar Cookie Recipe

It all starts with a good sugar cookie recipe.

And if the basic cookie is not delicious, it doesn't really matter what it looks like.

I've been using the following recipe for many years. I think it's "secret ingredient" is the sour cream. It holds its shape perfectly and tastes the best of all I've had.

CookieCrazie Sugar Cookies

1 cup (227 grams) butter, softened (2 sticks)

1 1/2 cups (300 grams) sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup (125 grams) sour cream

4 & 3/4 cups (600 grams) flour

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/8 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

Cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg, vanilla, & sour cream. Blend in dry ingredients.
No refrigeration of dough is necessary.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Roll dough to desired thickness. Cut into shapes.
Place cookies on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake approx 20 minutes.

Yield: 20-25 medium cookies

CookieCon 2015 Book





CookieCon 2015 held lots of fun surprises.

One of them was the creation of this book about Cookie Connie entitled,
"If You Give a Cookie Decorator an Order".

Each of the twenty pages feature a scene full of cookies......created by a different cookie artist.

It is truly a one-of-a-kind book that brings a smile to the face.

The first "official reading" of the book was done at CookieCon 2015 on September 24, 2015.
After the opening ceremony, every participant was given a book.

I had the distinct privilege of designing a page in the book.
When I saw a chance to create a grocery store scene, I jumped at it. :)




The aisle cookies were huge.......around 10" tall at the longest point.




I joked about giving a thumb to Cookie Connie.....as she was thumb-less in the original photos.
But how in the world was she going to hold a grocery list without a thumb?! haha




I put so many ingredients in the grocery cart that you could hardly see the cart cookie itself.

Here's a photo with fewer ingredients so you can actually see a bit more of the cart.




There are so many wonderful pages in the book.














The details are FABULOUS!

..................................................................................................................

I have some good news and some bad news.

First....the bad news. (I always like to get it over with first.)

This book was only made for those who attended CookieCon 2015. It will not be offered for sale. :(
