Sukkot and Simchat Torah Cookies

September 27, 2010

The September 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Mandy of “What the Fruitcake?!” Mandy challenged everyone to make Decorated Sugar Cookies based on recipes from Peggy Porschen and The Joy of Baking.

The theme for this month’s challenge is September. This September, for me, has been all about the Jewish High Holidays. I did not have cookie cutters for etrogim, lulavim, or Simchat Torah flags, so I cut freehand.
