SHIRLEY TEMPLE COOKIES/ Good Ship Lollipop



That’s just one of many movies featuring Shirley Temple …. the chubby-cheeked, curly-haired, spunky, cutie-pie of the 1930’s who’s singing and tap dancing brought sunshine to Americans during the Depression. Shirley began her career at the tender age of three. She was a one and only and her talent and charm has never been duplicated.

I created a cookie of Shirley’s signature red and white, polka dot dress which she wore in the 1934 movie Stand up and Cheer. Relax, sip on a Shirley Temple (ginger ale & grenadine), and enjoy the cookie tutorial.
