Art: For The Love Of Music - Edible Artwork by Artist Shannon Girouard-Fogl
Spending long hours in my kitchen with a spatcula doesn't mean I can't hold a paint brush too! And who says artwork has to hand on a wall? Well, I'm pushing the limits now! I think you can look at art, feel art, hear art and NOW taste art! This is a small first feature art piece called "For The Love Of Music". These are actually Brown Sugar cookies with Vanilla Icing that have been hand painted with food dyes. Each heart has a different musical note and are quite pretty to look at. Yet, as my husband says... they are even more delicious! So you can chose to save these pretty cookies as art, or savor them with a cup of tea! These cookies will be available for purchase for the Jan. 2006 nibblefest contest on ebay that starts the evening of the 20th. Here's the Brown Sugar Cookie Recipe used for the base of these art pieces: Brown Sugar Cookies 1 cup butter, softened 2 cups brown sugar 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 5 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 cup milk (1 egg if desired for softer cookies with less crunch) In a large bowl, stir together 1 cup butter and brown sugar until smooth and creamy. Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking soda; stir into creamed mixture. Mix in milk, stirring until a soft dough forms. Cover, and chill for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). On a floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters. Place cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake in a preheated oven for 6 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
