Sometimes the best cure for burn out is to just play. I've been so busy lately with cookie orders and party planning (not complaining, I swear), that it's started to feel a little bit like a grind with little time to enjoy my family. This week I had some downtime and spent it not at the spa, but doing more cookies. Well, one monster cookie to be exact.
I'd had this idea of an Operation inspired cookie for awhile, but wasn't sure how exactly to go about it. I started out with a huge cookie - like 7x12" the biggest one to come out of our oven yet. I wanted the game pieces to be moveable, but wasn't sure exactly how to go about it. Pipe them on mini cookies, perhaps? I didn't want the cookies covering up the red openings so I ultimately just piped the shapes in royal icing on a sheet of wax paper and allowed them to dry before peeling them off. They're way more delicate this way, but it was the exact look I was going for. Loving this blast from the past and the newest member of our Play With Your Food movement. Plenty of detail pics ahead. Enjoy!
Pieces in place - and no annoying buzzer!
