Laser Tag Cookies!
I have been known to say that my only domestic quality is that I live in a house, so you might not expect me to be someone who spends a lot of time baking cookies…and yet, that is exactly what I did this weekend.
This is definitely not my typical kind of post, but when you can’t play as much laser tag as you want you have to find other ways to fill your time. A few weeks back I had an idea and I spent some time sketching out line drawings of a few of my favorite phaser designs which I sent to a woman on Etsy to have custom made into laser tag cookie cutters. As soon as they arrived I couldn’t wait to try them out!
It’s been awhile since I baked any homemade cookies, so I turned to another blog (because bloggers know best!) to find a sugar cookie recipe that would hold all the details of my cookie shapes. If you are interested you can find the recipe I used here…
I got to work preparing my sugar cookie dough and rolled out a nice surface to see how the cookie cutters would do.
These worked perfectly! Before too long I had several trays filled with phaser cookies, ready to bake.
And once the cookies were done I got to do my favorite part…decorating! You may recall in my last post I said I was at the craft store when the message about the tournament came in. Well, the reason I was there was to buy an assortment of fondant icing in a variety of colors so that I could replicate the look of the phasers with as much authenticity as possible (when you’re talking about baked goods). Fondant was ideal because, much like dough, it can be rolled out and the details cut out with the cookie cutters as well. I was really pleased with how these cookies came out.
I’ll admit that in the past I have managed to bribe a player to join my league team with the promise of making a batch of peanut butter rice krispie treats, but I have a feeling that with these laser tag cookies I may have just leveled up!
