Decorated Hydrangea Cookies

How to make beautiful hydrangea cookies.

Before moving to Virginia at age seventeen, I had never seen hydrangeas. The instant I laid eyes on those beautiful, colorful blooms, I fell forever in love. Now that I'm back home in Texas, "real" hydrangeas aren't a possibility, but for years I have dreamed of enjoying them again. So, I made my own hydrangeas, cookie-style.

Over time, as I gained experienced and confidence, I realized that … [Read more...]
