Cowboy Western Cookies

This weekend, we went to Rodeo Austin, an annual faire with farm animals, tractors, a petting zoo, pony rides, and carnival rides. The actual rodeo takes place at night, but the mornings are quite enough excitement for a toddler. Our two-year-old wore his cowboy boots and hat, and I had made these cowboy cookies for us to have as a snack (in addition to the funnel cake, hot dogs and other things we got there). We had a blast!

The cookies were made with the largest cutter (2.5"x 3") from the R & M Fluted Rectangular Cookie Cutter Set, iced with white, then wafer-papered. I made a border on two of the cookies, but I really thought it too much—they didn't need it—so I left the rest plain. The whole set has 18 different cowboy scenes, with bull-riding, roping, sheriffs, wagons, etc. The images are from an early 1900s set of collectible cowboy cards.

The wafer papers are available at my shop.
