"Maryland is for Crabs!" Quite a slogan, huh? When I was a kid, tshirts with that motto were all over the place.
Crabbing and eating crabs is a summer tradition around here. Does any other state actually have an official "State Crustacean"? I dont' know, but we do - the Maryland Blue Crab.
So in honor of our adored crabs, I made cookies.When I saw the cutters, I just had to have them. It's early yet for a crab feast, but I wanted to make just a few cookies to see how they'd turn out.
I'm in love with these little guys. Look at those minis! Minis get me every time.
I was slightly intimidated before I started decorating them. I wasn't quite sure how to go about it.
I started by outlining with black. Then just flooded each section with red. They were really easy!
To simplify things even more, I think that outlining with red would be super cute too!
I know what I'll be bringing to the next crab feast! Can't wait!
