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.

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.♥
