Cherry on Top

I was asked to provide cookies for a fun activity with 8-12 year old girls.  I settled on a cherry cookie cutter, but I needed some filler cookies to go along with them.  It has been a bit dreary (ok, so really we are only on day 3 of snow this year, but I am DYING to see the sun), so I needed something bright and cheery!

These fun polka dot cookies were the easiest ones I have made so far!  I made the scalloped edge by piping small dots around the edge.  Before the dots had time to harden, I ran a straight line across the inside 1/4 of the dots.  Then blended together creating this fun scallop.

These were so easy to make...In fact, they were so easy that it didn't matter that I had to make the cookies TWICE because I was feeling super cocky and just skimmed my recipe and used baking soda in the recipe instead of the baking powder that it called for.  Note to self: baking soda is not a good substitute for baking powder.  I had so much time left over that day that on top of having my children's friends (who think they are over to play with me instead) over I also painted my kitchen.  Yay, Me!  Now if only the sunshine would peek out.
