MegaCrafty, I learned that the design was called "pysanky." And I was even more determined to make them into cookies.
Sugarbelle's Easter cookie round-up and saw that Haniela had made some beautiful pysanky cookies last year. And then I didn't want to make pysanky cookies anymore. I mean, seriously -- have you seen Haniela pipe?!
PS: I have a theory about tiny little spaces and the dreaded dents. I tested it with these cookies -- and NO dents. It doesn't prove anything, but I'm going to share it with you anyway. My theory is that in small spaces, the top of the icing meets before the bottom does and creates an air cavity which later sinks and creates the dent. So I just swirl a toothpick into the small area real quick. And I didn't have a single crater. And there was kind of a lot of small spaces on these cookies. I'll let you know if my theory fails me. But until it does...you can be sure I will be keeping my toothpick in its very special place called "my cupboard."
