It seems like we both had a lot of friends and loved ones who have been having health issues of late. Sometimes when you are unwell, all you need is a reminder of how tough you are to get through the hard times. These You’re One Tough Cookie homemade cookies are a great way to let someone know you are in their corner and really care. Whether you need to send a get-well, thinking of you, or cheer up for one of your loved ones, this cookie set will add a little humor to their recovery.
Supplies needed for You’re One Tough Cookie set:
- Classic sugar cookie recipe
- Royal icing recipe in white, flesh, light blue, and black colors
- Cookie cutters: graduation gown, heart, double hearts, circle, and rectangle
Steps to make hospital gown cookie:
The hospital gown cookie is the star of this set. A little humor goes a long way! This little peek-a-boo opening in the back of the gown is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face.
Steps to make stethoscope cookie:
Listening is one of the most important ways you can show empathy. Show you are listening and care by making a stethoscope on a double heart cookie.
Steps to make pill cookie:
Getting the medicine down doesn’t have to be painful with these sweet pill cookies. Have a treat after you take your medicine as a reward. There are lots of pill cookie cutters out there like this one but we didn’t have one on hand. To improvise, we cut a circle in half and added each end to a rectangle before baking it to create a pill shape. You can see the lines on the naked cookie but once it’s decorated, no one will notice;)
