How to Make ‘Mixed Metals' Decorated Sugar Cookies with Lustre Dusts
I love to paint AND I love to bake…so…yesterday I baked and painted and decorated sugar cookies.
And it was good.
And I have SOOOO much to do…but instead…I decorated ornament sugar cookies.
And it was such a nice way to spend the day because sometimes we just need to…shirk all of our responsibilities and paint and decorate sugar cookies! Am I right?
With edible metallic paint at that.
Now I just need the gifts to purchase themselves (but I'll wrap them because I have my new spiffy gift wrapping cart) and the house to clean itself and the laundry to wash and fold itself…but that's OK because I have pretty mixed metals decorated sugar cookies.
I used my favorite sugar cookie recipe that I altered slightly.
And then cut them out using Ornament Shaped Cookie Cutters…because ornaments PLUS copper and silver are lovely.

And then I found these FUN metallic lustre dusts that are mixed with lemon extract. I used their copper dust and their silver dust. If you've never used these lustre dusts, don't be intimidated. Just get yourself some lemon extract (must be lemon…it has the right percentage of alcohol) and some little, inexpensive paintbrushes and have a go.

So, if your laundry is piling up, and you need to take pictures for your Christmas card, and you have only purchased 2 Christmas gifts, and your family is on the 5th night of eating leftovers for dinner, and your dog needs a bath…then by all means…bake some cookies and spend the day painting and decorating them!!
It will do your soul good.
