I'm going ALL royal icing today for a design that I has been slowly etching itself into my mind over the last 7 months. (That's a long time in cookie years.) Not that these cookies have been sitting around for 7 months waiting for their design. I baked them this morning. And then I waited very much not patiently for them to cool.
If I were a naming kind of person, I would call this "The Madeline Collection." Because I have learned 2 things about art -- 1) If you frame it -- its REAL art and 2) If you add the word "collection" its official. So consider these cookies officially official. And pass the milk. (But not really, because I don't actually drink milk.)
