Baby Shower Cookies

I think it's gonna be a girl

I'm not a huge fan of sugar cookies compared to other more homely and yet more delicious cookies. But. . . they are so damn PRETTY that I make them anyway. The recipe I made recently, however, was really rather delicious (even better as uncooked dough balls stolen from the fridge during the night). Possibly the best sugar cookies I've ever had. So I'm going to go ahead and share the recipe. The cookies come out tender and just a bit chewy.

Sans Rival

Mmm, triangular slice of rectangular cake.

I didn't really find the Sans Rival to be aptly named. It tasted a lot like a big wafer cookie. The meringue was good, though I think that the mild flavour of the cashews got a bit lost. The icing was good, but too sweet. Together, it was pretty lack-lustre. Really, does a cake made almost entirely of icing sound good to you?
