    Has anyone tried to make the Featured Recipe right now?
    "Pink Ribbon Cookies"

    I was just curious. I was thinking these would make a great "Pamper a Business" recipe for May to try to get HWC Catalog shows through businesses- since the cookies give a great conversation starter (because of the pink ribbon).

    But I'm thinking they sound complicated (the icing). ANyone try them yet?

    Hmm, I tried your link and it came up no recipe currently available. Maybe because I'm in Canada. I'm off to see if it's on our website as well.

    Oh. Yeah- it might. I was on the main PC site (US - English version). Sorry. It's found under the Recipes and comes up as the Featured.

    This is the Consultant Corner link to the Pink Ribbon Cookies. I don't know if you have a different CC for Canada too. :( Sorry.

    I am attaching the web page as a pdf so you can see it Jodi (and any others that couldn't access it).

    It looks beyond my abilities as a baker but am curious how easy it is also.

    I made them last year - did not like them. To me, they were too dense. Maybe I did something wrong ( I don't bake) but they did not taste good to me.

    Anyone else?

    Some of my former upline made them for a HWC event. They are a little time-intensive when it comes to the icing. And I've heard from other consultants that the cake mix based cookie isn't the best tasting thing in the world.

    could you just make normal sugar cookies (either the fridge version or homemade) and then ice them like that? They may taste better. I have a great sugar cookie recipe that everyone raves about if you want it.

    I would think you could do this. My other thought is, the cookie you are icing, may need to be moist so that it can soak in the icing.

    I could just see mine looking a little strange...;)

    Okay I just realized. We need to carry a Ribbon Cookie cutter!

    Yeah- that would be neat to have in the HWC months.
    The cookie cutter at the above link is really cute- and you could ice a regular sugar cookie with a pink icing and be done! *hmmm* Wonder how long shipping would take? Or if any of the kitchen stores around here would have something like this? I would love to just have a quick and simple treat for Pampering a few businesses (thinking local hair salons and day-spas- where they cater to women especially) this month. I don't have a lot of time to do anything really complicated.

    Found this photo on The Cookie Cutter Shop site . They have a Ribbon Cutter also.

    - This would be really cute if you did it in the small batter bowl (sugar cookie recipe) and attached a cookie cutter to it (this site, you can get them for $1 each if you buy in bulk.) Might make a good raffle or giveaway item probably!

    What about making a round sugar cookie and icing it with white frosting and then use the HWC stencils from last year!

    We had ribbon cake stencils a couple of years ago, and they weren't a big seller. As cool as we think a ribbon item like that is, there just isn't the demand for it. Only a minority of the population will make baked goods shaped like or decorated with awareness ribbons (of any color), but EVERYONE can use a scraper.
