SWEET Summer (Fruit) Decorated Cookie Collection

OK…..let’s discuss one of the best parts of summer. FRUIT! haha

Since last August, I’ve been eating a plant-based diet, and FRUIT, by far, is the most delicious of all the plant foods. :)

Summer brings out the best in fruit. Most everything is in season…..and SCRUMPTIOUS.

Here’s to diving into all that fruit-y deliciousness!

Berry Berry Cookie Collection

This cookie collection all came about because I found these cute ceramic fruit crates at Michaels.
As soon as I saw them.....I thought, "I should make some berry cookies to put in them." 
That's the first time the photo prop came BEFORE the cookies. ;)

This was a very rewarding set of cookies.
I studied each berry and tried to make them as authentic as I could.

And I've gotten more compliments on these cookies than most others.

Here's the whole gang all together.
I loved photographing them!

CookieCrazie's Week in Review




Personal Side

Oh my.....CookieCon was fabulous.
I have so many things I want to write.....but I'll save it for my CookieCon 2014 post
coming soon!

As you'll see in the below Instagram photos.....
I posted lots and lots of photos the entire time I was at CC.

I was thinking of those at home who were sad and lonely.....
and wanted to make sure they were kept up to date on what was happening.

Since the CookieCon 2014 post is taking me a LLOOOONNNNGGG time to put together.....
I'll keep this short. :)

Raspberry Cookies (Tutorial)

One of my favorite fruits (I have many!) is BERRIES.

As I was dreaming about spring and summer, berries came to mind.
Making those dreams into cookies has really brightened up this L.O.N.G winter.

Let's start with raspberries.

To get a more 3D look with the berries, roll together a short "log" with dough and then cut it in half.
Each half can be a berry with a domed front.

Once the cookies are baked, outline and flood the cookies with "raspberry color".
(I mixed Americolor Super Red and Deep Pink together until I got the color I wanted.)

Give the base-coat about one hour to dry.
Then add oval "drupelets" (official name) of icing all over the cookie in haphazard rows.
Make sure they are not touching, since glaze will run together.

After 30 min of dry time, fill in the rest of the spots with more oval "drupelets".

Easy peasy......and oh, so yummy......both the cookie-form AND the real form. ;)
