You know me, gotta make cookies for every holiday!
Say you love your mom this mother’s day with cookies cards! Because nothing says “I love you” more than sweets. A little lovin from the oven, now she can eat your words, this is NOT a crumby card…ha ha ok Ill stop with the cookie puns but they are so good. I had to share.
This time I changed up my sugar cookies with some watercolor (food color) painting. It is so easy to do and a lot of fun! I might be painting more cookies from here on out. Definitely a lot quicker then mixing 6 different colors.
Thanks to tara for the adorable hand written “mom, you are…” tags that are the perfect touch.
Letter Cookie Cutters
Long Macaroon Boxes (12′ long w/o window)
(Just buy regular paintbrushes but use them only for food coloring, don’t use already used paintbrushes)
You can find the cookie recipe here.
Make and frost your cookies
Put a TINY dab of food coloring on a plate, mix in a little water. Use a test cookie to practice on. You don’t want the food coloring to be too watery.
Then start to paint!
Let dry and you are done! yum yum yum.
Fill up a macaroon box with the gift fill and place cookies inside. Wrap it up and put a cute “mom you are” tag. Then give some sweet cookie goodness.
Seriously such a fun idea!
I love these so much!
I think you r very, very, talented, I love the mother day cookis
These are so pretty! I love them.
Macaron boxes, not macaroon. But a very cute idea!
So beautiful! Do you have another link to the cookie cutters? the link you have right now goes to a blank page. Thanks!

The dimensions height of the box is smaller than the cookie cutter size. It still fits ok in the box? I just want to make sure before I try these!
Hi Becca!! Yes, actually the letter cookie cutters are smaller than the rest of the cookie cutters in that container so they fit perfectly :)
