What I Did During Naptime

It's just easier to work while Danny naps.

I made about three dozen of these to send out as gifts with preserves. If I can manage it, I might make the chocolate covered caramels to send along as well. Maybe a few candied apples.

I deliberately drew the lines by dripping the frosting off the edge of a knife to keep it informal looking. I was afraid piping it on by pastry bag would look too rigid and perfect against the somewhat blurriness of the cookie colours. Not sure the overall effect worked, but it is pretty close to what I had in mind. Getting that purple colour just right was a frustrating exercise though.

Thanks JK, they turned out better than I expected.
