Ricki Arno’s Butter CookiesApril 9, 2007
I’ve always had a love affair with cookies. Homemade, store bought, big, little, creme filled, dotted with chips – love ’em all. Martha ratcheted up my love by enticing me with those big copper cookie cutter cookies – and the royal icing – ah. . . who can resist. This Victoria magazine cover displayed the most beautiful cookies I’d ever seen. So, of course, I had to call the maker of the cookies at her shop in New York and ask her how they were made! She was fabulous and told me the trick was in mixing your gel food coloring with alcohol – like Vodka (I used Ouzo my first time). I’ll post my pics and recipe soon. . .
