chili pepper cookies

Made these for a Father's Day Fiesta, which my BFF puts on each year. My first experience with "flooding" icing, and with using the newish Wilton icing-in-a-glue-bottle. You microwave the bottle full of icing, do an outline around the cookie, let that set up, then reheat the icing and "flood" the centers. I used regular stuff for the leaves, since I wanted a little dimension on them. One small disappointment: the next day, the frosting had lost it's glossy look, and had streaks. So do them the day of, not the night before.
