Cookies for Church Picnic

Our church's annual Labor Day picnic is this weekend and I signed up to bring some dessert. (Of course.)  I was thinking of various cookie designs - sunshine? picnic basket? - but I decided to try something I've never tried before.  I made the church logo with frosting!
These layered design cookies take several days to make due to drying time.  I baked the cookies one day, did the white frosting base another day, and finished up the logo part today.  I did the logo in three steps.  First I piped the "SBC" with a #7 tip in the blue frosting.  Then I piped the brown part of the compass with a #3 tip.  Finally, I added the blue compass points with a #3 tip.

It was fun to try something new.  And I think my church family will get a kick out of seeing them.
