Movie Quote Cookies by Guest Blogger Mrs. Fox’s Sweets

A quick note before we get rolling – the finalists in the Easter Craft Challenge have been announced!  Once you take a look at today’s post, pop on over there to cast your vote!

Sometimes I think I must have the best blog-friends ever.  You’ll probably recognize today’s guest Christina from Mrs. Fox’s Sweets, because we team up every holiday for a joint link party.  (In fact, our Bunny Hop Easter Party is going on until Sunday, so if you have any Easter posts, you should add them to the collection!)  She knows that April is Script Frenzy for me, and that I’m busy starting work on the first draft of my screenplay this month.  We got to talking about some of our favorite movies of all-time were, and she surprised me with these sweet treats!

Hi there! I am so excited to be back at Happy Hour Projects, one of my favorite just about everything blogs! You may remember me from last time I was over here visiting or from the seasonal link parties that Adrianne and I are hosting together! Just in case we haven’t met, I am Christina and my blog is Mrs. Fox’s Sweets, where you can find lots of different sweet ideas ranging from easy to slightly difficult. I also host Mrs. Fox’s Sweet Party where you can link up your sweet treats and desserts!

For Adrianne, this month is a big month with her fabulous writing adventures and since cookies are currently my favorite sweet to make, I decided to make cookies from 3 of Adrianne’s all-time favorite movies!

The quotes on the cookies above are from one of the movies. Keep reading to find out which one! These are made using a basic sugar cookie recipe and royal icing.
There are many different cut-out sugar cookie recipes out there. You can view my favorite cut-out cookie recipes on the Mrs. Fox’s Sweets FAQ page. I like changing up the basic sugar cookie recipe using different flavorings. Once you have decided on a recipe, cut out, baked, and cooled your cookies you are ready to decorate. For the set of cookies that I am using for the quick tutorial below, I am using a glaze type icing, also found on my FAQ page.
To decorate the cookies you will need a few disposable piping bags, size 1 and size 2 tips, couplers, and I also like to have the covers to keep the icing from leaking on the table and to keep it from drying out.
Once the icing is in the bag, it needs to be closed off so that it doesn’t leak out the other end. This can be done with a clip or rubber band.
Outline cookie with size 2 tip and let dry for about a half hour. This outline will prevent the inside icing from running off the sides when flooding in the next step. This glaze type icing is a little more difficult to to work with than royal icing and tends to spread out more, but it is also softer and taste better to me than royal icing.
Still using tip 2, fill in cookie being careful not to overflow the outline. These will need to dry for 8 to 12 hours before decorating with edible ink pens. Without using white coloring, the glaze icing is also a little translucent, but I thought it kinda worked here looking like parchment once it dried.
Once the cookies had dried, I used edible markers to write the quotes from…can you guess the movie?
Keep reading to find out what movie these are from!
These final cookies were made using royal icing. Since I outlined in black, I let the outline dry overnight to make sure that it wouldn’t bleed. The next day I flooded the cookie with white, and later than evening piped the quotes on using tip 1. Can you name this movie?
 
These movies were all movies that Adrianne and I both grew up watching. I had a fun time with my daughter watching them all again before creating these cookies!
From top to bottom: A Knight’s Tale, The Princess Bride, and Labyrinth
Did you remember any of them?
 Thanks again Adrianne for having me over and taking this trip down memory lane with me!
A huge thanks to Christina for this post!  What is your favorite movie quote of all-time?
