Fancy Schmancy Fish Cookies  

I just made these for my son-in-law's birthday.  He's the hunting/fishing type.   

These are hand painted sugar cookies accented with luster dust for that fishy shimmer, just where the sun would hit them.  I only use this recipe for regular sugar cookie cutouts.  I have a different one for chocolate.  I am SO grateful to have found these recipes.  They DO NOT EXPAND!!!!! 

I used an Ann Clark 5 1/2" cutter.  I paint with vodka and Americolor food coloring with several brushes.  I used Julia Usher's royal icing recipe with these icing bags.  No icing tip, just clipped the tiniest bit of the bag tip off.  Apparently they don't make the small stringer any more, so I had to use this large one, but it's cute anyway and he can use it to fish with after the gifting.  I poked the stringer holes with a small straw. 

The wood slab is special to me.  It's heart shaped and cut from my beloved Bradford Pear tree several years ago when it fell in a storm.  I miss all the beauty God put in our lives with it.  It's nice to have some of it still with me!

And if you don't think you can do this, I want you to know that this is only my second time painting on a cookie and I've only flooded royal icing a couple of times before and over several years span.  If I can YOU can so give it a try.   LOL and it only took me 13 hours over three days to make 24 cookies!!!  LOL  Not kidding.  I kept track this time, start to finish, not including any bagging or wrapping.  And that doesn't include hardening time.  But go ahead, it's fun and you feel good giving such extravagant gifts!

I had a hard time finding any information on making these, so I've included links above to what I used.  Ohhh, and just for the record, the Goldfish cracker shaped cutter that came with this set is TOO cute and I can't wait to make some for my grandchildren!!!!

Hope you enjoyed!  Have a great day and God bless you!
