A ton of extra cookies?

I am new to this whole cookie decorating thing but I LOVE it! It is so much fun BUT it requires a lot of practice and I have so much fun doing it that I don't want to stop... so my question is what do you all do with all of these cookies!? I think my family is pretty much sick of eating sugar cookies and the employees that work for us will get sick at some point too I think. I just want to keep baking so I was wondering if any of you had some suggestions on what to do with all of the cookies...Read More...

Mystery Cookie Cutter - What Is It?

Hi! So I picked up a second-hand set of cookie-cutters from a neighbour, and there is one I absolutely cannot figure out. The cutter were all very ordinary, mostly Christmas-themed, but with a few random shapes (a fish, a mushroom, a moon...) thrown in. Have any of you any idea of what this thing is supposed to be?

Quick & Easy Rectangle Cookies

I recently needed to make some rectangle cookies but I did not have the correct size of cutter. I also did not want to hand cut them! So I had an "ah ha" moment that is very obvious and one that most of you probably already figured out. But I decided to post it just in case. I needed to make 1.5" x 2.5" cookies that I would then ice and place a chocolate plaque on top. I made a 1.5" x 11" template (I recycle the plastic fronts of my husband's holiday booze sets for templates...they work...Read More...
