Every July my spinning guild has a wonderful pot luck dinner to celebrate the summer and just relax with wonderful people. I usually bring a dessert since I always come straight from work and can never swing home before the dinner. This year I wanted to make sheep cookies from the cookie cutter Scott gave me for my birthday. I always use Alton Brown’s sugar cookie recipe for any cookie I want to roll out. I find that his cookie holds the shape well and is easily amended. I make linzer tarts out of this recipe and add lime zest to pair with the raspberry jam. For these I added a teaspoon of vanilla.
I outline the cookie with some icing, I used Sugar Cookie Frosting from i am baker and americolor food coloring.
Then I flood the cookie.
Add the lighter color.
Then add details.
They were a huge hit at the dinner.
