Orange Almond Lingerie Cookies
Friday February 10, 2012
These cookies are not intended for younger audiences. Viewer discression is advised (Sorry I had to do it).
My dad sent me a photo of cookies that were decorated similarily and I had to try it- they were just too funny to pass up. These cookies are a fun addition for Valentintes day! Or just for a laugh- give them to your friends.
Instead of making boring old sugar cookies (nothing wrong with them, I just wanted some more flavour) I decided to make 3 different types of cookies to decorate. I made gingerbread, orange-almond, and graham cracker (I did not post the graham recipe because I didn't think they went well with the royal icing). These cookies can be used with any type of cookie cutter, and decorated any way you would like.
The process was mostly enjoyable - although it took me FOREVER. I would council anyone who wants to try this to only make 1 type of cookie, and maybe only 1 batch... Your thumb/wrist will thank you. Your back will thank you. You also will not develop an acute case of carpal tunnel for your efforts, and you wont be left with a kitchen that closely resembles a minefield.
Also if you need a tutorial on how to decorate with royal icing there is a very extensive one HERE on the blog "Annie's Eats". She is MUCH more talented than me at decorating cookies.
