Pirate Cookies

When I first started decorating, cookies were not something I really wanted to attempt to decorate.  First off they are small, and secondly, outlining, waiting, flooding, waiting, and repeat over and over again is not my cup of tea.  Needless to say I didn't do many of them... and then I discovered you can use fondant to decorate cookies!!!  I have no clue why this didn't dawn on me earlier!

So over Christmas break, I decided to give it a shot and found it to be quite enjoyable.  While they still take time, the drying time is nearly nonexistent.  You can also easily save your leftover fondant easily and in one big bucket.  You can even try using modeling chocolate or flavored fondant, such as Fondarific, to cover cookies adding another layer of flavor to your standard sugar cookie!!  Now I just need to make some "for real"....

Please enter my friend Kelly.  Her husband graciously designed my logo and her little boy's was this past weekend.  He is into pirates and asked if I could make some cookies for it.  So here they are!

If I did them again I would probably use fondant or royal icing for the mouth and probably change out the eyes... what do you think?
