Mekhi and I made cookies using Wilton recipes, cookie cutters and I attempted to make decorating bags. Ahem. The cookies were a simple sugar cookie that I let set overnight after baking.
We mostly used pumpkin shapes because I didn't want to get too complicated with the decorating.
The following day I made a meringue based icing and colored it orange. I kept it simple.
I did try to make pastry decorators but that was a disaster. I couldn't get it right. Overall I'm happy with the final outcome and perhaps I will have my girlfriend teach me decorating techniques in the future.
The cookies were delicious and we took them with us to a Falloween party where they were enjoyed by all!
