First Holy Communion Cross Cookies

These are some of my favorite cookies I’ve made and decorated to date.

I wanted to share these First Holy Communion cross cookies that I made for the daughter of a very good friend, Roxanna.

Although they’re simply decorated, I actually like that about them. Most of them are white-on-white and I think there’s a certain elegance to that.

These crosses are such a cute way to commemorate a First Holy Communion, but they would also make adorable baptismal favors or even little homemade treats for an Easter basket.

There are no photos here of the decorating process.

I actually made them right before I started my blog, when I still had no idea how to use my new camera, and I had so much fun making these cross cookies that they actually inspired me to want to learn so much more about cookie decorating (and photographing food). They played a big part in finally starting to blog about the learning experiences.

Basically, I just outlined and flooded each cross, let them dry for a few hours, and then started adding decorative touches to each one.

In all I made four dozen cookies for Paloma’s classmates and each cookie is decorated differently.

I put little crosses on some, dots and swirly lines on others, and curly-Q’s on yet others. I was just having fun.

At Paloma’s request I added a few touches of mint green on some of them: It’s one of her favorite colors and the color she had chosen as the accent color for her big day. A pretty combination.

They were all individually wrapped and tied with a coordinating ribbon.

I will always remember these cross cookies as one of my first “successes” in cookie decorating.

Congratulations again Paloma!
