Calling All Superheroes!

Sorry I haven't posted in over a week......things have been a bit busy over here.  I've just finished a 10-day course of antibiotics for a sinus infection that left me feeling rather yucks.  Also, over the weekend we took our little monkeys out to Vegas for the Monster Jam World Finals.  Yep.....Vegas......the monkeys loved it!!  Our little guy keeps grabbing his ticket and tells me that he's going to go see more monster trucks!  Oh, and on top of it all, we're in escrow on a new place and are working on enrolling the boys in new schools for the upcoming school year.  Lot's of stuff going on around here!!

I made these super hero cookies for a dear friend's son's birthday party.  As you can guess, it was a superhero birthday party.  I've had the Marvel superhero cookie cutters from Williams-Sonoma since they came out, but hadn't gotten around to actually using this was a perfect opportunity!  The set actually comes with the Hulk as well......but I decided to keep it a little simpler for me and go with Iron Man, Spiderman, and Captain America.

Williams-Sonoma actually has posted their recipe for sugar cookies (get it here), and a decorating guide for these cookies with detailed instructions for each of them........geit it here.  The only thing I changed was that I used a black edible marker for doing the web design on Spiderman (instead of using black food coloring gel).

These guys take a little time to do.....but they were a huge hit!  For the little guys and the hubby too!  Enjoy!
