just before the fourth of July this year, i made Martha’s firecracker cookies which were featured on her July magazine cover. the recipe was for her traditional sugar cookie, however; she suggested decorations similar to those she features at Halloween for her spider cookies.
these cookies took four hours to make. since the cookies need to be chilled before baking on the baking sheets, it took two hours to scoop, chill and bake the cookie dough. next, the cookies needed to cool before decorating. and finally, the decorations were able to be completed.
the cookies are delicious and i would certainly make them again.
