Arabesque hand painted cookie

I love decorating confections with geometric designs!

I was beyond impressed with a lovely gift set I recently received: A Jay Strongwater throw and pillow. Both have an exquisitely embroidered, by hand, arabesque pattern. The minute I saw the pattern I felt like one of those cartoon characters when they have an idea and a bubble appears floating over their heads. My bubble although was filled with ideas of cookie designs using a piped Arabesque pattern!
