If you can't tell, this is a bowling pin and ball. OR I guess it could be a lowercase b. :)
I am learning how to cut those shapes as close as I can so I am not working the dough too much. These cookies are 4"x 5"! Big!
Baked and ready to be dressed.
My workstation...getting more efficient each time!
So the kids were in bed. It was 8pm. Scott was upstairs quarantined in the guest room with the flu the entire day. I had a long, challenging day and I was ready to do this!!! I put on Pandora - some easy-listening 80s music to relax. Yes, kinda weird, but I was in THAT kind of mood. This was going to be therapeutic...until...I panicked!!! I realized I wasn't sure how to do this!!! Then I realized I panic every time I sit down to do the first cookie. These are not just creations for my family to enjoy. People PAY me to do this. I took a deep breath and piped a curve to complete the circle for the ball. Once I did the first couple, I felt sooooo much better. I was able to enjoy the rest...so much - that I forgot to take more pics of the process!!!
The only picture from my bowling cookie journey. :)
The finished products! Pretty cute, I thought!
Close up - I decided to go with a variety of colors for the balls.
They came out pretty neat and colorful for a kid's birthday party.
Packaged and ready...bye-bye bowling cookies!
