We had a special day to celebrate the Feast of Saint Clare. We invited friends over to decorate these cookies and then visit our local Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration.
The cookies were sugar cross-shaped cookies, decorated with chocolate brown icing to match the habit of the Poor Clares. We piped with white icing on each cookie one of the four vows that the sisters take when they profess their Solemn Vows:
The sisters were so happy to see our happy children and to get their cookie treats on their special feast day.
"Go forth in peace, for you have followed the good road. Go forth without fear, for he who created you has made you holy, has always protected you, and loves you as a mother. Blessed be you, my God, for having created me." - St. Clare of Assisi
