Fairy Door or Princess Door Cookies!

Colleen Sowa


Little girls love princess and fairy theme parties... This is an easy way to add a little to the themes!

Make the doors look like they came from a castle or from little fairies...


*** I used red licorice (pull apart kind) for door knobs, hinges and some outlining of doors.

*** I used chocolat candy rocks/stones outlining of some of the doors. (I just love the candy rocks... they are like a rustic m&M candy)
