Testcookies

Yesterday I made some cookies as a test, because I was asked to make some for a group of activists who work for the promotion of renewable energy sources like wind and water. The cookies should depict a water wave.
Because powdered sugar is hard to get in organic quality and making powder from 4 lbs of sugar is not an option, I used organic normal sugar crystals. They are bigger than the non-organic ones and the cookies are much more crispy than if they had been made with powdered sugar. I would have preferred using powder, but I made do with what I could get.

I used 500 grams sugar, 500 grams butter and 1kg white wheat flour, 125 ml milk and a pinch of salt, and 15 grams of baking soda to make a dough. Half of the dough was left undyed and I added some cocoa powder/blue food colouring to the rest. I then rolled the dough into thick cances and cut shapes out, and made a block of dough containing a wave shape. I refrigerated the whole shape and after 2 hours, when it was all cold, I cut the block into slices and baked them.
I decorated them with a mixture of a little powdered sugar and lemon juice.
