Henna Inspired Sugar Cookies

Henna Inspired Sugar Cookies | The Crafting Foodie

Last week my family and I celebrated Eid Al-Adha, and I part of the spread included these Henna inspired sugar cookies.

I chose bright colors, because in Pakistan and India, vivid colors are always part of any celebration.

People often ask what the designs symbolize, and they don't represent anything in particular. They're just meant to look pretty, and I think these cookies do just that.

Here's a photo of my little girl's henna designs. She got her henna put on at a salon this year, and she was super excited. I was happy because she was happy, but secretly, I was a bit disappointed with the design. It's sort of sloppy. I know I could have made it so much better, but there was no time this year for me to make the designs myself. Hopefully next year!

I have to admit, I know nothing about this lovely holiday. But I know that you did it justice and explained without words with these amazingly beautiful cookies. Your talent leaves me in awe!! These cookies are almost too pretty to eat!! ^_^ Great work, Aida!!

Your cookies look amazing! I love the color combo.

Wow, they're amazing! Beautiful designs and great colors, too pretty to eat, ha ha. Thanks for visiting me, and thanks for the great tip about the milk cartons at Whole Foods not having plastic spouts- I'm going to add that to my post about the Candy House. Take care - Dawn @ We Call It Junkin.com

These cookies are absolutely gorgeous Aida! So intricate! You are very talented...and I am very jealous! :)

Gorgeous and absolutely perfect! And I love the color combinations! I hope you had a wonderful Eid. :)

Hi Nicole,

Thanks so much for the kind words! My kids and nieces and nephews had no problem eating them, but not after a lot of excitement. That's what makes them such a treat to share with others. They love them as much as I love making them!

Thanks so much Stephanie! The color combo is unique and very bright! Thanks for stopping by the Crafting Foodie!

Best,
Aida

Thanks Zainab! And Eib Mubarak to you as well! Hope you and you family had a wonderful celebration. I have to admit that I'm sort of wiped out from Eid and Halloween being pretty much back to back!

Thanks Maysem!When I was younger I loved putting henna tattoos on, and it turns out that it was great practice for piping frosting! I hope you and your family had a wonderful Eid as well :)
