Baby Beau is on the way so we made these cookies for his cowboy-themed baby shower. The mother-to-be sent photos of her invitation and party decorations so we could coordinate the cookie colors. Don’t you just love the color palatte? The topaz blue contrasts beautifully with all the muted colors you’d find in the wild west. The designs for the Baby Beau Shower Cookies are a modern take on a traditional cowboy theme. These simple shapes, designs and colors will harmonize with the rest of the party decor.
As many of you know, Kimberly is a gluten-free girl. When it’s her turn to bake for the blog, she uses gluten-free flour to make the cookies. We have found that King Arthur Measure for Measure is a great gluten-free flour that can be used in place of all-purpose flour in many recipes. Every once in a while, we like to try new things. So, this time we used Namaste Perfect Flour Blend for the cookies. The flavor of the Namaste flour cookies is great. However, the cookies spread more, were flaky, and the surface was not smooth. We’ll use the rest of the Namaste flour for other baked goods and go back to King Arthur for our next batch of cookies.

Our mother-to-be wanted to wear a fitted white dress and tan cowboy hat for the shower and she wanted a cookie to match. She sent a photo we could use as a template to draw a simplified version to make in cookie form.
