Julia M. Usher

Meet Julia M. Usher, my cookie guru and idol. She's the founder and host of Cookie Connection and author of the award-winning Cookie Swap and Ultimate Cookies cookbooks.  This celebrated pastry chef and food writer was once a nuclear reactor systems engineer for General Electric prior to beginning her career in food!  Who would have thunk??!!!

I first stumbled upon Julie's cookies while scouring the net for cookie decorating tutorials. I found her on Youtube and spent hours and hours learning and oogling at every single amazing detail of her 3D cookies.

Julia is about the most creative cookier I have ever met. I could go on and on about her jaw-dropping cookies but like they say, a picture paints a thousands words.

I'm sharing just these 10 photos from her website.

Believe it or not -  these are 100 percent cookie and icing!

  1. Wow she is really talented!!


  2. Holy cow!! I wonder how long she spends on each cookie? And how many she makes at a time.

    So sorry for the news this week in Malaysia. We are very sorry for the loss of life.

  3. I am constantly amazed by the talent some people!!

  4. WOW that is a true art form! All of her creations are pretty!

  5. You aren't kidding, those are SPECTACULAR!!! I love them all, but I think the cookie wedding cake is my favorite!

  6. I can see why she is so inspirational to you! But your cookies are amazing too, and you're well on your way to matching her talent :)

  7. UNBELIEVABLE!!!!! Talent doesn't quite describe it... she's amazing! If given one of those cookies, I would put it in a glass box and display it. I couldn't even think about eating it! I can't wait to see more of your creations inspired by her. :)
