As promised!

Sushi grass: finally useful!

I do not lie. I am late however.

Without further ado, here are my belated St David's Day cut-out cookies. The sugar dough recipe can be found here (I used the zest of a lemon to flavour it), and the way I applied the sanding sugar was rather renegade - I diluted a little golden syrup with boiling water, brushed the cookies with this homemade 'glue' (well, come on, that's what it is) and then dipped and sprinkled away.

*SHOCK* Naked Welsh dragon alert.

And I know that the Welsh flag doesn't actually have grass on it as such, but there's only so long a man can have plastic sushi grass in his cupboard without using it. Fact.

Enjoy.

  3. Omg. He is perfect! I like the touch of sushi grass. What's his name? Or has he reached the 'other-side' now?

  4. Asthershe - I DREAM of making that. But even I daren't put that much butter and sugar in anything. Maybe one day.

    Dave - You know George is getting cookies. Patrick didn't, but so what.

    Sanjana - Yeah. He's gone. Poor thing. Actually, maybe it was a she. Let's call her Harriet. Post-humously.

  6. Love your dragon. Always been confused why sushi boxes have plastic grass in them.

  7. Oh you trickster! I saw the sushi grass, and thought that the sanding sugar was tobiko. That would be weird, but strangely I think it might also work somehow. Perhaps if the cookie were more savoury, and you stuck the tobiko on with cream cheese? Not sure if St Dave would approve.
