These were the first decorated cookies I had ever considered doing, so I scoured everything online that I could find to learn how to do this. I settled upon using a glaze recipe I found on Allrecipes.com and bought a goat cookie cutter through a seller on Etsy.
Because I was terrified about making the spots on the goats, I conned a friend into helping me with them and she agreed to do the spots and hooves for me, which was a really good thing since it made me be on a time schedule and have the cookies made with their base coat of the glaze on them in advance to be able to get them to her to do the spots.
Here's how they turned out:
At the time, I was so very proud of them, but in my two subsequent batches of making decorated cookies since then, I have learned so much and now think these little guys look a little sad. I am considering remaking them to compare.
