Granny Square Cookies
from Sugar and Meringue

Granny Squares Cookies


1. Cut and bake square cookies. I happened to have some scalloped square cookies already baked so that’s what I used but plain squares would be just fine. You can use a clean plastic ruler and a pizza cutter to cut the squares. Mine are about 3”.

2. Outline, then flood the squares. I used a bit of ivory gel color to give them a more nostalgic look.

3. Using a #1 or #2 tip - pipe a series of little squares in three colors as shown starting with the center square, then go back and “squiggle” over your lines to give the effect of yarn. Squiggle a border around the whole thing and your done!
