4th of July Cookies with Swirled Royal Icing

Last weekend, I pulled out my super-awesomely-delicious Lemon Cutout Cookie recipe.
With a great deal of help from the little man, we took 700 times longer than usual to cut out flags, stars, and hot air balloons to commemorate our town's annual hot air balloon festival that happens yearly over Independence Day weekend.

I used royal icing and a toothpick to pull through for the swirl effect in the icing.  The lemon flavor and the light icing were the perfect combination for a summer cookie.

Almost too cute to eat.
