Ramadan Lantern Cookies

A very belated Ramadan Mubarak to all of you! Hope that all of you had a wonderful start to this blessed month. It's the perfect time to take a break from all the drama and chaos of our lives and focus on what is important. I've been spending time with family and friends, breaking fast together, being charitable and working on multiple volunteer projects, well you get the idea!

As we all know, I always look for any excuse to bake cookies and make a banner. I love adding personal touches during any festive occasion and why should our annual ifter be any different. I made these cookies as part of the dessert spread, but it easily doubled as part of the table d├ęcor!

I've had this lantern cookie cutter from With a Spin for a while, but have been wanting to do something different with it, and finally decided to make a lantern banner!

I used my go to short bread cookie recipe and decorated with my to go royal icing.

To decorate the cookies, I first flooded all the cookies with white frosting and let it dry over night. Then I piped the letter on with a thicker consistency of royal icing shaded with purple food color. With the leftover frosting I added rosettes using a star tip and drop of green frosting to make a leaf (this I had to do because I can't seem to use the leaf tip!)

Thanks for stopping by!


Don't forget, caring is sharing!
