She learned everything she knows about sparkles from Dolly Parton.


Country music singer Carly Pearce may be best known for her debut single, "Every Little Thing," but the Kentucky native has been burning up the charts since coming onto the Nashville scene in 2016. She even recently performed on the CMT Awards with Trisha Yearwood. But between shows and recordings, Carly stopped by the Allrecipes studios to talk about how she feeds herself on the road, the dishes she served at her wedding to fellow singer Michael Ray — it involves a biscuit bar, y'all — and which country music icons leave her star struck.

While she chatted, Carly turned a tasty peanut butter cookie into a version of herself, and her work was quite impressive. After all, Carly has been honing her cookie-decorating skills since she was a child by decorating Christmas cookies with her mom. See how well those years of practice paid off by watching Carly craft her cookie twin.
