I’m not a big fan of artificial sweeteners, but when In The Raw found out I would be attending Eat Write Retreat, they sent me a bag of their new Monk Fruit In The Raw™ Bakers Bag and a “top secret” sugar cookie recipe. They asked that I try the recipe and decorate the cookies in my own “signature style.”
Thinking about my “signature style” is kind of scary. I have little patience and my cookie decorating skills are minimal, but I decided to give it a shot anyway. Where are my Ninja Bread Men-decorating nephews when I need them?
I made these Ladybug Cookies for Mom last weekend for Mother’s Day. Mom lives on a lake named Buggs Island and her chapter of the Red Hat Society is nicknamed the “Ladybugs.” (She naturally gets lots of stuff featuring the black and red insects as gifts.) She and Dad immediately realized that the cookies were supposed to look like ladybugs, so I took that as a good sign.
I don’t eat many cookies these days, but I did taste one of these and I must say they were pretty good. Mom liked them too and that was what mattered most to me.
