So I found this recipe for swan cookies and I was intrigued by how simple it looked to make the swan shapes! But the recipe was very vague and included some European ingredients I didn’t feel like hunting down, so here is our version.
Refrigerated pie crust
A couple raisins (or brown sprinkles)
1 egg plus a little water
Unroll the pie crust and cut out circles with a glass or cookie cutter. Fold the circles in half, then refer to the original recipe for where to cut and how to shape into a swan. Just three little cuts, curl the neck, and spread the wings a little!
Cut up raisins into little bits and place as an eye on each.
Mix the egg with a little water and brush over the cookies. Sprinkle sugar all over each.
Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes until golden!
I had a pretty cute little helper, and little mister not-taking-a-morning-nap entertained with toys in his high chair for a bit!
They came out pretty good! But then I also really like pie crust (even better raw – but I couldn’t swipe much in front of the kiddos. I’m such a weirdo)
The boys liked them (only a little bit for Elliot, and Leland would eat them all day if I let him – I’m using “save some to show and give to Daddy” to keep him from eating more after his nap!).
P.S this is a great shot of Elliot’s coming-in-out-of-order teeth and amber necklace!
