Thank you for the different suggestions on the oil in the pan.

Here are my two prototype cookies. Which do you like better?

For those who offered ideas, here is some feedback on how they looked.

I didn't like how the whipped piping gel looked, because it made the top of the cookie look really messy, so I opted for the colored sugar. So, I'm trying to decide which I like better, or if I should mix the yellow with clear for a lighter version?

Any thoughts? I'm open to other ideas, too!

Thanks,
Kathi

I like number two best - the color of the pan and fewer oil "bubbles"....Don't you wish you could feel as relaxed and contented as that latke looks?

I agree with Spuddysmom. Cookie #2 looks best.

Thank you! I'd love to hear more opinions, because my kids (teens) both like the other one best, and I want to work on these tonight and tomorrow.

Any one else have an opinion??

Thanks,
Kathi

OMG, those are the freakin cutest things I've ever seen!!! So clever!

I can't decide between the two, as far as the sugar/oil. But, I wonder what you think about adding another layer of icing, or perhaps fondant, around the outer edge of the pan and the handle to give it some depth?

I wish I could be with my family for the holidays JUST so I could make these cookies! You have a lucky family. icon_smile.gif

Thanks DianeLM. I don't want to use fondant on these cookies, but I suppose I could make the outer ring and handle with thicker icing and make it higher than the interior. I'm worried they might break when I transport them to the party though. I'm using Toba's glaze and it doesn't get as hard as Royal. Have a Happy Chanukah!

Any other opinions out there???

Thanks,
Kathi

I like the first one better. If I were frying latkes, the oil would probably be to the edge of the pan, just like the first cooke, plus, it helps to define the pan shape, I think. The second one makes me think of Saturn.

Very cute idea! Great job!
