Every major holiday I make my great-grandmother’s secret recipe iced sugar cookies. My co-workers expect them and if I don’t make them I get asked for them. My co-workers like them they say due to the soft centers and sweet, but not too sweet icing. Each year I want to try to decorate them a little different. This year I wanted to do baby chicks in honor of our new hens. I was unsure how to easily make the cookie cutter I had into a chick… so I did some trials and asked my husband his opinion…


Options for decorating I didn't like as much...








So I tried some more… I know they are not the most amazing of decorated cookies, but I wanted a simple way to make a baby chick…

All the little chicks








I had two ways my husband liked them so I did both and took them to work to see which one got the most votes with my coworker… It was almost a tie so I thought I would ask you…

My favorite two options
I call this the kissing chicks









Which one do you think looks most like a baby chick? The one where the beak is highlighted or the one with just an eye?

  1. I think the beak highlighting works well, it gives them more personality.
    They also look totally delicious.

    • Thank you for the vote It’s 2 to 0 now in favor of the highlighted beaks. My co-woerks and husband said they are delicious, I wish there was taste o vision.

  2. I don’t like the eyebrow on the chick (sorry) – I like the one with only the eye which is highlighted. I love the shape of your cookie cutter.

    • I agree that is why after a few I stopped and went with the two on the bottom photo. I got the cookie cutter at Michaels arts and Crafts I think 🙂

What do you think? I would love to hear from you :)
