I decided to do a very simple cookie design this week for the food delivery because I had a rather busy scheduled for the rest of life.  This was my plan at least.  I chose a popsicle because we’re in the last days of summer.  My sisters and a few others weighed in and thought it was essential that the popsicle have a bite out of it.  My watermelon had a bite out of it but that is the shape of the cookie cutter. My popsicle cutter is whole. I tried to explain this but got a lot of pushback.  So I gave in and created a bite mark with a small fluted mini-tart pan which, according to opinions I received, makes it personal.  I am going to insert my opinion here which is that when anyone has ever offered me a popsicle, a cookie or a piece of watermelon for that matter, I have never said “Could you take a bite out of it first?” Not once have I said that. In any case, I gave the people what they wanted and the cookies do look cute.

I used Julia's @Julia M. Usher sugar cookie variation of lemon and cardamom and a lightly flavored lemon icing so it gave the cook a pop of summer flavor before the season ends. 

The cookies also gave me a chance to play around with the airbrush.  I want to get more comfortable (and better) with airbrushing.  The repetition helped.  I’m slowly getting a feel for it but know I have a long way to go. There is always something to learn!

I just love the airbrushed colors! Those popsicles remind me of my kids when they were little and would take a bite of something and then decide that they didn't like it. And put it back. 🙄😄

Lol. Well they do say that the first bite is always the best. I guess in your childrens' assessment, they assumed it was all downhill after that. 😂❤️

Okay, I'm LOLing about this comment, "I am going to insert my opinion here which is that when anyone has ever offered me a popsicle, a cookie or a piece of watermelon for that matter, I have never said “Could you take a bite out of it first?” Not once have I said that." NOR HAVE I! But, I agree, they look pretty darn cute with that bite.  The colors are also particularly scrumptious! 

Thank you Julia.  I originally dove into airbrushing with stencils.  I didn't like my results and became frustrated.  Now I am trying to work my way back in by starting at the beginning.  I now believe there's airbrushing hope for me after all!!

They look so gorgeous!! I loved the bite and your creativity, once again, to obtain it! That recipe of Julia’s @Julia M. Usher sounds delicious, I’ll try it too!

Congratulations, dear Lisa!♥️

Thank you for your continued kindness my dear friend @Heather Bruce Sosa.  I highly recommend all of Julia's sugar cookie variations !
