Penguin Cookies

One of the best things about having a 9 year old is the announcement at bedtime that he promised his teacher you could bake 48 purple penguin-shaped cookies for the next day at school.

Good thing he gave me enough time.  Too bad he knew about it for 2 weeks beforehand.

This is what I managed to put together on short notice.  Actually, I kind of like that each penguin is completely unique from the others, and I have to say, having some “emergency” pre-made royal icing in the pantry made the ECBF laugh at me, but it really came through on this one.  Yeah buddy.

Some fat ones, some little ones, some with wonky wings… it’s a diverse family of penguins.

The plan? I made some sugar cookie dough, dyed 1/3 of it purple, wrapped it around the un-dyed dough and sliced it like those Pillsbury cookies.  Not my finest work – but I’ll tell you what – it’s better than a box of Timbits.
