Peace Baby, Peace & Love & Tutorial on How To Make Tie Dye Peace Cookies

Today I have Peace sign cookies for you. I had a lot of fun with these. I bought this great peace cookie cutter from CheapCookieCutters.com. Everyone always asks me where I get my cookie cutters, so I'm going to try to make a point of telling you on my blog posts, so you can get one too. I've heard there's a lot of confusion over peace sign cookie cutters from others where the center piece is separate and they weren't sure what to do with it. This cookie cutter that I found, is one piece. Easy peasy. It cuts out the two sides and the two lower sections for you and you're left with just a super cute peace cookie cutter that is 3.5". I really like this one. 
 I wanted to do several in a tie dye design. I'll show you how.
Choose your colors and then work in sections and somewhat quickly. See on the right hand side? That's your visual to get started. Take your first color and make lines enough apart to fit in 2 more colors without a bunch of space in between.
 Then the start adding in your second color. Try to work quickly or at least do it in sections the way shown below.
Then your 3rd color and hopefully this will fill up all the empty spaces.
Lastly take a toothpick and pull through all those lines in a downward motion throughout the section that you just iced. Fun huh!






That's it for today. Guess what - I'll have more cookies for you tomorrow :-)

I'm looking into getting a new camera to try to take better photos of my cookies. Please comment here if you have suggestions or what camera you use. Glaze icing is so shiny that I get lots of glare and have invested in TWO photo tents and lots of backgrounds and I'm still having difficulty. It's time for a better camera!

For those that missed seeing the Peace background with these cookies, here it is:

  1. Peace signs and Volkswagon Beetles just seem to go hand in hand don't they? Love your cookies Cristin and wish I had some good camera advice for you but I don't. Check with Cookie crazie or I am Baker as I know they both use glaze.
