Baby chick cookies

 

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?

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

    I prefer the ones with the beak highlighted, but they all look nice

    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.
