Iced Sugar Cookies (Kenyon College Shield Sugar Cookies)

Kenyon College Shield Sugar Cookies

Incredibly yummy hand decorated sugar cookies, filled with a whole lot of collegiate spirit!

I was inspired to make these after spending a weekend back on the campus of my alma mater, Kenyon College, for my husband's five year reunion. I didn't have a shield cookie cutter and I couldn't find one in the shape of the college's shield, so I made one out of cardboard.

My college swim coach had never had any of my sweets, so he asked me to send him something to try. Since I was having such nostalgic feelings toward my alma mater and baked these cookies, I decided that these were the ones that he would get to try. Coach sent me an email after receiving them, and here's part of what he wrote:

The Kenyon shield cookies and the cinnamon scones were every bit as good as Alex said they were ... and the proof is in the pudding (or the cookie batter):  it's taken me every bit of the last 5 weeks to work off the extra weight I so gloriously put on consuming Mimi's Sweets! :)  

If you've ever had the pleasure of meeting Coach Steen, then you know that his swimmers have a desire to please and live for the moments when they receive praise from him. So, to say the least, I was overjoyed when I received his email. 

As you read, I also made him Cinnamon Chip Scones since he specifically requested them.

Anyway, I finished up the shield cookies and had extra purple icing and cookie dough left over-- so, I decided to make some regular ones and decorated them with the rest of the leftover icing (pictured below).
