Canada Day is fast approaching, and while I had been thinking about it for several weeks already, shockingly I had not thought of what sort of red & white/Canadian goodies I could make for the day! Only 2 days ago did I realize I had not thought up a thing to make, and of course Canada Day being so important, I went into quick-thinking/slightly panicking mode. I started flipping through my recipes, scanning the internet, and looking through other blogs that I read. Unfortunately, what added to my panic was that instead of finding one or two things that I thought might be perfect, I found too many! The hard part was then to narrow it down.
Originally I wasn't going to make cookies, as they can take a very long time. These ones took for-ever, as I decided to try my hand at making some a little more detailed. My whole day off was spent working on them, but I am immensly proud and so excited to show them off! There may be an abundance of pictures on this post... I can't help it!
This Canadian Mountie is my absolute favourite one! Although you can tell there's a little bleeding between the black and ivory on the face.... I got a little too eager and couldn't wait any longer... same with why the green one in the corner got a bit smushed.
There may be some other Canada Day goodies in the mix, but I don't know if I will be able to get them on the blog before Canada Day! Such is life... this is what happens when you start things last minute. I will try, and if I don't make it, at least you know they'll be up soon and you can use them for next year.
Happy Canada Day my fellow Canadians!Pin It
