Do you ever feel like there are so many ideas going on in your head that you don’t know what to do first? That’s how I feel these days. There are so many cookie techniques and designs that I want to try, that I don’t know where to start sometimes. The latte cookie is one I’ve been dying to do and I took the opportunity with these Father’s Day Cookies. Today I’m going to show you my version of how to make Father’s Day latte cookies.
I know in my last post I mentioned that I was in the process of starting up my own baking business. I’ve been trying to do one thing at a time so I don’t get completely stressed out. It’s both exciting and makes me nervous at the same time.
I used to be such a good planner. I have always liked to plan ahead and have lists made for organization. Well there are SO many things right now. I have two graduations and two birthdays this month. AND Father’s Day. 😯 No need to panic right? SURE!
Let me tell you how I made these adorable Father’s Day latte cookies. First of all, I did not have a cutter. I traced out these lattes and hand-cut them. This wasn’t such a big deal because I was only making a few. If you have to make a lot of them, I highly suggest buying the cutter.
After the cookies were baked and cooled, I used a food color marker and drew out the marks I needed to make the latte. I used 20-second icing and filled in first the white, and then the green. After a couple of hours, I piped the accents on the lids and let the cookies dry for 24 hours.
After the cookies dried overnight, I used the food color marker and drew out my letters and designs I wanted to pipe. I piped the letters and the outlines of the mustaches and hearts. Then I filled in with flood icing. I actually loved the way these turned out!
Now that the cookies are dry, I sent one to work with my husband, one to school with my youngest and promptly texted my daughter to come pick up the rest! How do you think I keep from gaining back the 53 pounds I lost? I might save ONE for myself. I can run it off later. 😋
If you decide to make these cookies, let me know how they turned out!
