Cookie Baking

I have been wanting to try making cookies using royal icing.  Have you all seen those fun videos floating around that makes it look so easy?  Well... Let me just say it's going to take me lots more practice to get better.

I tried the brush method.  I used the smallest icing tip that I had to draw my flower shape, then used a small paint brush to drag the edges.  

It is really fun if you have time and enjoy this kind of thing!  Needless to say, only about 15 of my 50 cookies had flowers... The rest remained plain!  I just didn't have the patience that day!

If you don't currently follow me on Instagram here's your chance to find out what's been going on!  If you do, sorry for the repeats!

Chow time! #farmerswife

Someone's a little scared... Can't say that I blame her.  I wouldn't want to ride with me in a stick shift either.

Looking forward to having everyone here for Easter!  Hallelujah!  He is risen!

Burning pasture.  First time helping... only because everyone else is busy! #kansasfarmwife #farmerswife

Dear Jacob, I hope you were serious when I asked you what you wanted for breakfast!  I know I was! #greeneggsandham

I saved the best for last to send through the chute.  #farmwife #workingcattle

Date night last night was fishing.  Me- 5 Hubby- 0.  Mostly because he spent the entire time teaching me how to cast properly and untangling my line.

We are having fish sticks for supper.
