These were the FIRST EVER cookies I ever decorated.
I made 30 of them.
My son wanted to take cookies to his school Halloween party and I had no idea what I was doing.
I didn't know what Royal Icing was at the time.
So...I figured, let's just use buttercream!
I did, but cookies decorated with buttercream icing aren't easy to transport.
I had to lay them all flat in multiple cardboard pastry boxes so that none would overlap or touch each other.
But it worked!
They weren't beautiful.
But I was told...
By one VERY amazing little lady in the fourth grade class...
That was all I needed to hear...whether they looked good or not.
