This is really just a quick share! If you want to learn how to make these cute cookies, there is a wonderful tutorial online via Montreal Confections' Patreon page. It is a subscription - but for as little as $1 per month you can have access to many of her tutorials. I enjoy learning from Marlyn and I bet you would too. She was the original creator of the PYO (Paint-Your-Own) cookie - often copied in the cookie world! She always says she's happy for people to learn and use her designs. I do think, however, it is important for cookie artists to attribute the source of their design ideas in social media. That's why you often see my posts including where I learn things. I'm a little creative...but not THAT creative. The link to her YouTube channel above shows samples of the types of PYO cookies you can learn to do on her Patreon Channel. The actual tutorials are on Patreon at this point.
These were my first PYO cookies. I made them for my grandkids and some friends of my oldest son...everyone seemed happy to get them! They were also happy to see I had used my Vanilla Bean Sugar Cookie dough. It's the family favorite. These cookies were really large and sturdy. They measured 6 1/2 inches tall and were rolled 3/8" thick. I only used 1/4 tsp. of baking powder to prevent spread (but I used a tiny bit so I would have some lift - it's a fine line)!
|Simple designs or more intricate.|
You can gear it more towards
the age of the child by piping
larger patterns, easier to paint
and stay in the lines...
although staying in the lines
is not at all necessary!
Happy Easter Everyone!!! May you be blessed with spending the day with your family and/or friends! Those who don't celebrate Easter - just have a marvelous Sunday!
I just received a photo of one of the painted cookies. Yay! Thanks for sharing the art work :-)
