Well, I have finished up the second batch of Signature Sweet Shoppe cookies. I don't like this recipe, I found that it spread a bit and then produced ragged edges on my cookies, maybe due to it being all butter...but then again it could be the baker icon_smile.gif ! I used the suggested lemon extract and it just didn't impress the cookie tasters or the baker. I took all the suggestions from my last whiny post and had much better success. Thank you to all who made such great suggestions. I used larger cutters that arrived after the first batch was baked. I used Toba Garret's glace' icing which is great to work with. I also used squeeze bottles for the flooding and it made all the difference in the world not only to ease of use, but my hands didn't shake so much...I am old, what can I say? icon_redface.gif I also kept a finger on my hand and that helped with the shaking...a big thanks to whomever suggested that. I did a couple of things wrong...tried to do line work with the flood icing... icon_rolleyes.gif and will need to wait longer to let things dry. Overall, I think with practice I will get better...I have a ton of pictures I want to copy for practice. The bakers on this board are great inspiration and have such cool ideas. Thanks again everyone!

I posted a picture today, hope it shows up.
