Canada Day Cookies!!

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.

If you're interested in making yummy sugar cookies, check out my post here for ingredients and directions.

 Happy Canada Day my fellow Canadians!
