The Ralphie Cookie

Anybody who knows Jonathan knows he LOVES the University of Colorado at Boulder.  Even more than the school, he loves the football team.  So I wanted to surprise him with some Ralphie cookies!  I happened to find the official Ralphie cookie cutter, and had a magnet that was roughly the same size that I was able to use ad a decorating template.  And the results are ...

Pretty cool, isn't it!   For the "CU" logo, I placed the magnet under a piece of parchment paper and then used royal icing to trace the logo.  Once it dried, I very carefully lifted it from the paper and moved to the cookie.  The icing was wet, so the logo simply stuck and stayed on the cookie once the icing dried.
