Over here at Windy & friends, we are getting ready for a new story in our series of Appisodes: Windy's Valentine Delight is coming out this week! More news soon, but in the meantime, here is a little Valentine's project we did! Really, you could do this anytime of the year.
We made our scribble cookies with Henry, who was 4 when we made these. To make your own you will need some edible color markers like these ones from Wilton. Edible color markers are basically felt pens with food colouring for ink found in some specialty bake shops — we bought ours online. We found out about them from our friend Lyndsay over at Cococake Land.
We've had ours for a year now and they still work. They have less sugar than icing (in fact they have no sugar), and they don't make a mess. It makes for a really relaxed hands-free session of kid cookie-making with little clean-up time.
1. Make or buy a batch of light-coloured cookies. We made Cinnamon Shortbread adapted from the Gingerbread Shorties at Remedial Eating. The adaptation was: we added more cinnamon ^_^
2. Once they are cool, break out your edible color pens.
That's it! Have a good time in the kitchen.
