Their cookies make me want to make cookies. Good cookies, too. Now, I know that sugar cookie skills don't happen over night. So I thought I had better get started if I wanted my cookies to be fabulous any time soon.
In pops a need for sugar cookies.
My dear friend's son recently had surgery and I thought I would make his day with some sweets.
Well, technically I left a facebook comment asking my friends for a reason to bake cookies. But who's keeping track of these minor details?
I didn't know much about my friend's son, other than his name and his age. I did some research, combing through my friend's facebook photos. Low and behold, I come across a picture of her son wearing a Star Wars shirt. So I went with it.
Let's hope he's still into Star Wars.
I still have a long way to go. I haven't mastered outlining the cookie with royal icing yet. It seems simple enough, yet every time I tried tracing the cookie, my hand didn't make a nice circle.
One lesson I learned this time is to take my time next time. By the time I got to writing Noah, my hand was shot. I could barely write a straight line.

I'm still working out the spill and fill method too.
But that's what I got. I think Noah will be satisfied, and that's the only one who matters.
I'll post the royal icing recipe soon. It's definitely a keeper.
