As you know, I love Medieval manuscripts, so when I ran into these gorgeous images from the 15th-century Italian Capodilista Codex, I knew I had to turn them into cookies. The knights are arrayed in their gorgeous jousting armor, the horses and banners are rich in color. I made these cookies with my trusty 2"x3" cutter from the R & M Fluted Rectangular Cookie Cutter Set, piped beige borders with a #16 star tip, and gilded them with Wilton Pearl Dust in Gold. My son is just a toddler, so he doesn't understand anything about knights yet, but I bet he will in a few years, and then I'll be making them again for a boys' playdate or party!
