Don't Mess with Texas (Irish)

Texas Notre Dame decorated cookies

Believe it or not, these cookies were not made for Jack. (You're thinking...yeah, right.) Over the summer, we met a nice young man from our parish who was (is) about to start his first year at ND. I thought he needed cookies.

Side note: why do I always think people NEED cookies? Possibly because I think *I* need a cookie several times per day.

I decided to add a little Texas flair to this set, as opposed to this one and this one that I made last year.

Here's where you can find the Notre Dame cookie cutter.

For the cookies, I used my ol' stand-by recipes: perfect cut-out cookies and royal icing.

For the colors: 
  • green: Americolor Forest mixed with Leaf
  • navy: Chefmaster Navy
  • yellow: Americolor Egg Yellow
  • red: Americolor Super REd
  • white: Americolor Bright White


We dropped Jack back at college for his sophomore year last week. I keep coming back to the word bittersweet. It totally encapsulates the experience. Somehow, the joy does outweigh the sadness.♥

  1. Your son looks like a doctor-in-training already. To go to Notre Dame is such an achievement. You must be unbelievably proud of him, and he must be MENSA-smart! I applied to ND on a whim after sitting through one of their info/recruitment sessions, but like so many, I was not chosen to attend. From the looks of your son, he seems to fit right in.
