Kaaren’s Baby Shower Part 2

July 20, 2011

One other thing I made for Kaaren’s baby shower were sugar cookies. Although I realized that a regular sugar cookie recipe doesn’t work if you want it on a stick. You need to make sure it’s a thicker recipe (which doesn’t taste as great to me, I prefer chewy). Often people will use butter cookie, Cake Journal has great tutorials and advice on cookies on a stick.

Cookies on a stick are nice for display purposes, but really the stick holds no function whatsoever. I actually kind of think it’s stupid until I see then displayed beautifuly in a vase.

I also made this Apricot Almond Tart which I can’t remember where I got the recipe. This is great if you are doing a low-carb diet since the crust is just ground almonds. Since it doesn’t rise you could even replace it with some sort of sugar substitute (Splenda). I can’t say I’m a big fan of that if you are doing it strictly to count calories. They never taste as good, and quite frankly, I’d rather a small piece of something awesome then a lot of something mediocre.
