I thought it would be cute to bring it to life and express it for real, so I did! These sugar cookies took forever, but I really love the high contrast and I don't care that it's just gibberish to me. Haha. I love black and white!
I hope that you guys get a kick out of my HTTP Cookies!
Step 1: Recipes Used
Aside from the listed ingredients, just make sure to have black gel dye, to dye some of your icing and a #1 piping tip and a piping bag. Then you'll be all set!
Step 2: How to Choose Your Cookies!
Luckily, I found some directions through google chrome (for my browser) and I was able to fish around for the perfect one to use.
Wrench icon, Options, Under the Hood, Content Settings, Cookies, "All Cookies and site Data" button, choose one from the list or search for a specific one.
THEN, click on it, a blue box should form, with mini boxes/buttons inside it. Those are the cookies. Just select one of them and you will see what the cookie says. It will be under "CONTENT"...then gibberish. :)
I searched for Instructables, there were 2 entries, 11 in one, 2 in the other. I chose the lesser, and the cookie named "InstructablesCookie" , and there you have it!
Step 3: Make & Bake!
Cut them out, try and keep their shapes, bake, let them cool and get ready to decorate!
Step 4: Ice, Ice, Baby!
Ice the cookies with a butter knife and get a nice, smooth, flat, round top. Once you're done, let them dry until they are firm to the touch.
Next, get ready with your black icing and the tiny piping tip for some detailing. Keep your HTTP Cookie code near by to use as "artistic" reference.
When you start to go blind from trying to fit so many characters onto one cookie, break them up with a few "HTTP Cookie" cookies. They still meet the need and express the phrase! :D
Step 5: Feed Everyone
"Look, this one is a reject, it's not straight!" Omg Mom! Get off my cookies! hahah. She even told me, with this batch, that I should just make one or 2 and let my family eat the rest. I'm telling you guys....it's that royal icing. She's in love with it. And my brothers kept asking when they would be ready too.
In the end, I stopped short and made them each a personal cookie. Then I sent my programmer husband to work with some HTTP Cookies, and the rest with my family. I have one left. Insane. :)
