Last week my family and I celebrated Eid Al-Adha, and I part of the spread included these Henna inspired sugar cookies.
I chose bright colors, because in Pakistan and India, vivid colors are always part of any celebration.
People often ask what the designs symbolize, and they don't represent anything in particular. They're just meant to look pretty, and I think these cookies do just that.
Here's a photo of my little girl's henna designs. She got her henna put on at a salon this year, and she was super excited. I was happy because she was happy, but secretly, I was a bit disappointed with the design. It's sort of sloppy. I know I could have made it so much better, but there was no time this year for me to make the designs myself. Hopefully next year!
The recipe I use of my sugar cookies and royal icing can me found here. Happy baking!
