I have been debating whether on not I would put these on my blog. Politics can be a pretty sensitive subject with a lot of people and I don't really want to start any debates. But, after careful thought, I decided I would share these cookies with my readers (all 2 of you :)) Not just because these cookies are adorable (which they are) but also because I am proud of my candidate and I think it's OK for people to know that. The last presidential election was my first time voting for the President. At that time I felt like I was voting for the "lesser of two evils". I really wasn't excited about either candidate but I voted anyway. This time around I am actually EXCITED about someone. On that note, if you agree with me, then go Barack the vote! If you don't agree with me, then go out and vote! Sure I wish you would vote for my candidate but this America and everyone deserves to have their voice be heard!
Obama Sugar Cookies
I used this sugar cookie recipe. Then I made a big batch of Wilton's buttercream icing. I split it into three and colored one batch blue, one batch red and left one batch white.
To create the Logo design:
Pipe a white circle around the edge of the cookie
Pipe one half circle with white icing in the middle of the cookie
Pipe 3 diagonal white lines under the half circle.
Using Red icing, fill in between the white lines
Using blue icing and a zig zag motion fill in the space between the outer white circle and the inner half circle.
Step back and admire you work then take a batch to your local campaign office. Then go VOTE!
