Purple Heart Camouflage cookies

Recently, a friend brought our community together in Pennsylvania for a farewell brunch for her daughter who will be deployed to Afghanistan.

People brought beautiful dishes and their best wishes for Nia who will be gone for a year.

The proud mama had decorated the room in purple, Nia's favorite color. 

To contribute to the theme and the occasion I made these purple camouflage cookies.

There was a Nutella station, in honor of Nia's favorite dessert.

Once everyone had eaten, we all lit a candle and made a wish for Nia.

To make the cookies, I used Sweet Sugarbelle's excellent camouflage cookie tutorial.  The sugar cookie and royal icing recipes were both from Bake at 350.

What better way to send a soldier off than surrounded by her loving family and friends and covered in frosting?

Best Wishes Nia and THANK YOU for your service!


  1. Those cookies are adorable. A big Thank You to Nia for her service. My daughter has a friend who just left for Korea and I know how much the families worry about their sons and daughters while they are away.

  2. Very fun purple camouflage cookies-thanks for sharing ;-)
