I was in a cookie baking mood. I had several days off and was going to take my time and leisurely bake and decorate to my heart’s content. One round of antibiotics later and several days of napping, I was down to one day for all my cookie baking needs. I tell you this because the final results pictures were taken after the sun went down and there wasn’t much I could do about it, but I appologize for the quality.
Ok, first question:
What am I doing with this combination of cookie cutters?
They end up making these cookies:
And then with the little bit of dough left over I made these hearts (so as not to waste dough)
(and yes I have so little counter space I sometimes have to use my stovetop) Will it help if I show you the colors I used?
Here are some of them decorated:
Alright I guess I will show you the full set. It might still be a little confusing though.
Is it twins? Nope! My friend KB and her family were finding out if their new baby is going to be a girl or a boy. Since I didn’t know when I was making the cookies I made both kinds. I thought it made for a very cute combination. I took all the blue and pink cookies to work and made everyone wait to try them until we got a phone call from KB. Once she made the big announcement I packed up the cookies that matched her new baby and let everyone else eat the cookies in the other color.
So here is the second question. Which cookies did I send to KB and her family?
Her little boy is going to have a baby brother! Congratulations! I am so thrilled for their whole family. (I was totally off, I have been saying for weeks it was a girl) Anyway, the pink cookies were enjoyed by everyone at work so they were not a total waste.
On a side note, I think I am going to keep making mini cookies from my scraps of dough. They always turn out so cute and are pretty quick to decorate. Plus they are perfect when you just want a bite.
Congrats KB (and MB and LB)!
