Lace Cookies

It didn’t even occur to me that is was December until I started reading all of my networking sites this morning! ARGHHH! It was bound to happen. I am BEHIND. I have a cookie I could post for today, but I just don’t like him…poor Peanut…maybe he can hang out on my FlickrPage. As for me, I will have to resort to plan B today. I have a lot of old favorite cookie collections that haven’t made it back onto the new blog. I told myself that if I ever got dreadfully behind, I would use it as an opportunity to get those back up. So…here you go.

I named these cookies the Opal collection after my great-grandmother Opal who used to make crocheted satin Christmas ornaments, that looked much like these! Neither she nor my mom ever successfully taught me to knit or crochet, but I sort of made my own way, I crochet with icing, LOL!
Since I feel bad for letting everyone down on the cookie-a-day thing, I plan on making it up to everyone! Stay tuned for a giveaway, and a tutorial. December has really put me in the giving mood, and I am planning giveaways all month long!

    These lacy guys are beautiful. I’ve been looking at your creations off and on all day. Loved the ice cream cones, especially the one you “dropped” I would have never thought of that! How wonderfully creative you are. You inspire me.

    Ahhh beautiful colours and laces! Everytime I see those colours, i am so tempted to try royal icing but I don’t dare! Can I just half the 101 royal icing recipe for a smaller quantity and what type of colouring should I use?
