These sweet housewarming sugar cookies were a commissioned gift for a friend of mine! After a lot of searching, her best friend had finally found the perfect home for her, and Allison wanted to make it a special weekend for her when she got to move in.
The “welcome mat” is rectangle cookie cutter. I love this one from Ann Clark because it is so versatile and great quality! I achieve that brown color with Wilton gel food coloring, and the darker brown “texture” is sponged on with a paper towel using a mix of vodka and food coloring. (The vodka evaporates out and helps it to dry better).
Side note: these tipless icing bags are my favorite for details! They are the best for writing (cut at an angle) and are what I used to make the texture on the wreath.
I knew I needed shiplap to complete the Farmhouse look! These are my favorite plaque cookie cutters with a simple white flood. I use Bakerpan food pens to add the lines, and then piped a key on! Gold Luster Dust mixed with vodka or Everclear makes the perfect paint for these!
We were so happy with the way that these came out, and the guest of honor absolutely loved them! These would be so perfect for a closing gift from a realtor to a client, a welcome gift for a new neighbor, or serve them up at a housewarming party!
