I am spending the last day of the year doing, what else, but making cookies. Glammy, glittery cookies for a sparkling new year. These are for a New year's Day brunch we're throwing tomorrow. Back in my kitchen in NYC less than 24 hours, I adapted traditional Italian prosecco cookies to roll out and I can't blame jet lag for the result.
I added more flour to the recipe hoping they would make the cookies more stable for rolling. I cut the large rectangles for the design. They looked perfect until I turned my back for a minute and they shrank into misshapen rectangles. I tried recut them then smoothed them out the best I could before putting them back into the oven where they proceeded to puff out way to much. I knew I should have cut the baking powder amount but didn't. Then I over thinned the royal icing so it was slip sliding away.
They taste ok though. Not too sweet but a good compliment with the royal icing. And they don't look half bad either.
It was a comedy of errors so I won't post the recipe. For more comedy, check out the funny food blogger posts listed below this past month.
Wishing you all love, happiness, health and success in the new year but most of all, laughter.
Have a wonderful evening! 2012. Bring It. On.
