Dragonflies. GLITTERY Dragonflies!

A while back, my friend Emily celebrated her birthday. Being a major dragonfly lover, she asked me to make her some purple dragonfly cookies for the occasion. Now, since I don't own a dragonfly cutter, Emily let me use hers...and let me just say I don't know that I'll be investing in a dragonfly cutter anytime soon. This was by far the hardest time I've ever had cutting out any cookie. Luckily, after much frustration, I was able to get about 3 dozen decent looking dragonflies from this darn cutter. Next was tghe fun part. Not only do I love the color choices, but this was the first time I've used sanding sugar (courtesy of Debbi) on my cookies.

So, it seems I'm having some issues with my icing still. Like my turkey cookies, I had an issue with the pink icing in the wings sinking in. I have no clue why that is. Regardless, I think the sanding sugar on the body makes up for the lack of awesome in the wings. And Emily liked her cookies, which is what matters when it comes down to it. And check it out! My mom made an extremely cute dragonfly birthday card to go with the cookies for Em. She loooves card-making and scrapbooking, and she's pretty good at it if I do say so myself. She makes really cute stuff. Check out her blog here, and see for yourself it's not just my slightly biased opinion. =)


  1. Pretty cookies Britt. Even though they were a pain to make it was worth out. They turned out great.

  2. Thanks sooo much for enduring all that cookie cutting for me! Everyone LOVED the cookies and they tasted DELICIOUS!!! You ROCK!
