Barnyard Animals Brown Sugar Cookies

Here are some simple barnyard animal brown sugar cookies :)


These cookies appear at the same party as the barnyard animal macarons. I am glad to work with a simple design that is cute at the same time :). Thankfully, I am given some reference pictures by the requester so I have designs that I could refer to.

I feel a little like a broken tape recorder when I post brown sugar cookies :p. But what has to be mentioned still has to be mentioned. You may find the recipe for the cookies and royal icing over here. I have not changed the recipe as I always get very good reviews for the cookies in terms of looks and taste. You may make your own templates by referring to this post. Baking time varies according to size and thickness of your cookies, and each oven is different so do use your eye as a gauge for doneness of cookies. Don't worry, the recipe is very forgiving. I err on the side of baking longer (but without burning the cookies) to keep the cookies dry as they soften a little when iced. These cookies are meant to be the soft and chewy type so you don't have to worry about it having a "lao hong" texture. They keep very well in airtight condition for up to a month plus too.

Just to share a couple of pictures of work-in-progress cookies when I remembered to take photos. Not many because I was busy with icing another batch of cookies at the same time :p

Nearly done! Left the faces!


Thank God these were very well received at the party! I am not joking when I tell you people who request for brown sugar cookies from me for the second or third time hide some for themselves before offering to guests because they love the taste so much!

With love,
