Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme Cookies

These wafer paper cookies are based on images from the 1915 Volland edition of Mother Goose, edited by Eulalia Osgoode Grover and illustrated by Frederick Richardson. The images are gorgeous, and each one has the nursery rhyme with the illustration, so the cookies can be read before eating. I sent them to my cousin, whose little ones started school and kindergarten, respectively, this week.

I made the cookies with the largest cutter from the R & M Fluted Rectangular Cookie Cutter Set. I piped borders with a #16 star tip. My dog stole one, and I gave one to my toddler, and everyone was pleased :)

I only wish my photos were better, but I had already shipped the cookies by the time I uploaded my pictures and realized they weren't up to snuff. Live and learn!

The wafer papers can be purchased HERE.

Happy decorating!

    While the 1915 Volland Edition of "Mother Goose" was compiled and edited by Eulalie Osgood Grover, the illustrations, pictured above, were all done by Frederick Richardson.
