Uncle Sam Hat cookies.....

Do you ever just have one of those days.....

You know the ones that start out with a schedule and a plan of what you will get done for the day. Nothing in your plan listed babies getting sick, husbands needing a ride home for lunch, 865 text message (yes I think I received that many), getting on facebook, and my plan defiantly didn't have anything  on it that said FORGET TO TAKE OUT SOMETHING FOR DINNER. How could I forget about dinner?

I mean we eat it every night, yet it totally slipped my mind. Will social services pick me up if I feed my husband and kids cookies for dinner? Somehow that is all I focused on today were cookies. They took me  half a day to do with all the interruptions. 

Even though we may all starve to death tonight, the cookies are made.  

I used a tombstone cutter to cut the hats out (just turn them upside down) and you have a hat. 

Let cookies cool on rack. 

Now...pull something out the freezer to fix your family for dinner (this is where I messed up)

Outline the blue area.

Then outline the red sections.

Allow the icing to dry for about 30 minutes. Next fill in the blue and red sections with flood icing. While the blue section is still wet place white star sprinkles. I used a tweezers to place them on the cookie. BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE COOKIE.

Let the red and blue sections dry for several hours.

Last you will fill in the white stripes with flood icing.

There you have it....Uncle Sam hats. These are great for the 4th of July, Memorial day, Labor day, or just for that special Soldier in your life.
