For the feast of the Holy Name of Mary we made a simple sugar cookie dessert. We used our sugar cookie recipe and our M-A-R-Y cookie cutters to make a super yummy dessert!
 *See below if you don\’t have alphabet cutters.

To give our cookies a blue color we added blue sugar to the top of the cookies before we baked them.  Of course, we realized too late that we didn\’t have any more blue decorating sugar. So we made some! Just place 3 or 4 tablespoons of granulated sugar into a zip-loc bag and then add a drop or two of blue food coloring. Zip up the bag and give it a good shake! If the sugar very wet you can spread it on out on wax paper to dry, but we just used our blue sugar as it was. 
The cookies came out of the oven with a blue glitter look! Perfect for Mary!
Once they were cool we used some whipped cream from a spray can to make a long row of cream. Then we added the M-A-R-Y letters to the front of the row.
Here is Mary\’s name written in the clouds!!
*Don\’t have the letter cookie cutters? That\’s okay!

If you don\’t have alphabet cookie cutters, try making the letter by hand. Maybe roll out the dough and hand-cut the letters with a knife. Or make the letters by creating long strains or ropes of rolled dough (my kids call them snakes) and form the long strains into the letter shapes.

It\’s a great activity for kids of all ages!
Super yummy and fun!
Have a blessed day!
