I am so excited to say some of our boys are home!
It was with great pleasure that I made these cookies. I've been very busy with these so I haven't had much time to blog.
When soldiers come home they are greeted by many loved ones, given welcome home parties and such. For the single soldier it's very different. They go back to the barracks. Our FRG (family readiness group) does a great job getting together welcome home baskets for our single soldiers. I wanted to be a part of this.
No way was I missing out on making some one's homecoming special.
I was on a mission to find a good cookie to do for them. After doing the 9/11 memorial cookies for a week I didn't want to see any more red, white and blue....not for a bit anyway.
I didn't want anything too complicated or time consuming, after all I needed 200 of these.
Callye, of Sweet Sugarbell's had made some camouflage cookies a few months back so I searched her blog and found them!
After following her tutorial and the cookies were dry, I added HOOAH to my cookies......HOOAH.......the Army's word for everything and anything. It means anything.....except "no".
You can learn how to make these here.
Allow cookies to dry overnight before adding wording.
Then I printed out HOOAH and used the the push pin trick....my handwriting isn't steady, especially with the insane amounts of coffee I consume. Just lay the print out on the cookie and use a push pin to mark the letters. Then connect the dots with the royal icing.
Welcome Home Soldiers!
