Dutch Children on Delft Porcelain Tile... Cookies!

I'll admit it: I've grown extremely fond of Delft blue porcelain and of Dutch boys and girls in art postcards. This is a set of postcards from the early 1900s to the 19-teens; they are unsigned, but the consensus is that the artwork is by my beloved Ellen H. Clapsaddle. How could I resist! I made a batch of 12 (2 each of the six designs), but a toddler and a dog got to the cookies before I had taken my photos :D

I made them with LilaLoa's Chocolate Cookie Recipe, using the rectangular cutter from this plaque cookie cutter set from, but they are sized in such a way that you could just as well use their 2.375" x 3.5" rectangular cookie cutter, or even cut out your own rectangles, if you wished to make them. I piped and flooded in white, wafer-papered them, and piped a border with a #16 star tip.

The wafer papers are available at my shop.
