Can you call something a tradition if you do it two years in a row? I’m starting a tradition, and this is year two. Since Jack was valedictorian of the very first graduating class of his high school, I thought it would be fun for him (*ahem, me?*) to give cookies to the valedictorian each subsequent year.
[NOTE: If you’re in the Houston area and looking for a Catholic High School, Frassati Catholic is like no other. The love and the joy in both the faculty and students is something to behold. If you ever want a tour, let me know…I’ll arrange it. (And probably meet you there.)]
But I digress. Cookies. We were talking cookies. Last year, I made this version. I did think those were cute…and they’re fewer steps to make…I like these better. How can you not love graduation cap-wearing, glasses-sporting chocolate chip cookies???
You can obviously customize the cap and tassel to coordinate with the school. This blue shade is a combination of Americolor Electric and Royal Blue. I loooooove it.
I used two cookie cutters and pieced them together to make this shape. The glasses are made from a Sweet Sugarbelle template. (You’ll need to make these at least a day ahead.) Let me walk you through it…
