100 Days of School Cookies
That's what we did at our house this weekend, gearing up for the big day.
Vanilla Sugar Cookie Recipe
or Chocolate Sugar Cookie Recipe
Small round cookie cutter (I used the medium of this set.)
Royal Icing Recipe
FoodWriter or other edible ink markers
*Note: It took me a little more than one batch to get the 100 cookies plus the rectangles for the extra cookies. You may be able to eek out 100 from a single batch, but I recommend at least a 1 1/2 batch of either recipe, just so you have a few for the inevitable mess-ups along the way. (I did not make nearly enough backups, which meant I was a little crabby when they were careless... not enjoyable!)
I rolled, baked and iced the cookies while the boys were at day 98 of school.
(I iced them using Royal Icing, a little bit thicker than I usually flood with. You want the line to disappear in the count of 20 instead of 10. See more on Royal Icing Consistency Here.)
Vanilla Sugar Cookies, and 50-100 in Chocolate Cookies.
It was a labor of love, but for each of the 25 kids in their classes, they get 4 cookies each to celebrate the occasion!
