Corn on the Cob Cookies

August 18, 2010

It’s that time of year again.  Ron’s sister Lynn and her husband hold their annual corn boil soon and as always, we look forward to attending.  The local corn this year is so, so good.  Big, sweet and juicy.  We already had quite a few dinners with this seasonal vegetable making a wonderful compliment to a great grilled steak or rotisserie chicken and look forward to a few more before it soon becomes a buttery kernel of a memory.

Lynn and Mark have a lovely country home and beautiful gardens in Monkland.  Their corn boil gathering is attended by both family and friends and it is always a fun time.

We will be bringing our Taco Salad as part of the pot-luck fare and I thought I’d made some corn on the cob cookies.  I also made cupcake cookies which I haven’t decorated yet.  There’s still time…

My photos for the *tutorial* portion of this post didn’t turn out so well.  I salvaged (barely) a few so I’ll keep it brief.

Using a #2 tip and AmeriColour Leaf Green piping frosting, draw your corn *ears* (my ears could use a bit of work) then again with a #2 but with AmeriColour Lemon Yellow piping, draw your corn cob.  Sporadically make the kernels with droplets of yellow.  As the kernels dry, add more and squeeze in a few white ones if you want to have peaches and cream corn!

Flood the *ears* with Leaf Green flood icing.  When dry, go over the outline of the *ears* one more time and then voilà, you are ready to harvest the corn with the rest of your vegetables!

I’m hooking this up at Tidymom’s I’m Lovin’ It Fridays.  Go on over and check out her re-designed blog.  Looks wonderful and lots of new people to meet as well.

Great job, Paula! I love these cookies! And a gathering centered around sweet corn is such a great idea. Fun, fun, fun!

So sorry I missed the corn boil—and these cookies! I did steal a piece of the boys, though. =) Keep up the great work!

I love these! You just gave me an cookie idea..perhaps I can try soon. I’m excited now.
You know those days when i struggle with a cookie design and then I see something and I get an idea. Well you caused the idea to emerge in my head and I thank you Paula.
Have a blessed day!
