Walnut Cookies - Assembly

Notes on baking that came out of assembly:

Underfill the molds - concave is desirable, convex is problematic.

Line them up by oven batch - that way the color will match.

Notes on assembly:

One full batch of royal icing per the recipe in the meringue powder is a good amount for probably 300 cookies.

Pipe using a quart sized freezer zip-lock and the medium large tip.  The small one is WAY too small.

Are you making three hundred cookies?

Actually I'm making 130 cookies. I have these cool little molds shaped like walnut shells. So if I make 260 halves, I "glue" them together to get 130 that look like walnuts.

My medieval group does a Yule event in early December every year, and one of the cool traditions is some sort of dessert that is passed around for everyone. Hidden in it are twelve silver rings that tradition says is for luck in the coming year. It's fun.

At any rate, we're serving 130 for dinner, so I need 130 "walnuts," twelve of which have sterling silver rings in them. They're all done now.

Tomorrow and Friday I'll be making a pork pie shaped to look like a boar's head.

Yeah, I've got weird hobbies...

I remember the boar head. Twice before, I think.
