C is for Cookie

I have several "favorite" customers. No, I don't normally play favorites, but when a customer tells me that they just want my cookies and I can make whatever I want to make, they go on my favorite list :-) I have so much fun with "play" cookies, so when one of my favorites contacted me and said "it's me, Cookie Monster, I just want your cookies", I just KNEW what I had to make! And I had SO much fun with them! I didn't tell her what I was going to make, so it was a complete surprise. This blog post used to show Cookie Monster cookies, but since they are a licensed item, I've only included the cookie with bite and milk cookies instead.

Cookie Cutters Available HERE

 I made a cookie cookie cutter with a nice size bite out of the cookie available HERE. These will be great for cookies and milk for Santa too.
 and outlined
I used the wet on wet technique to create the chocolate chips while the rest of the cookie icing was still wet.

 and you know if you're going to eat some yummy cookies, you need some milk to go along with them. Available HERE
 and an outline
While the white icing was still wet, I added a red heart candy to each milk carton and then after the white was all dry, I wrote MILK on each carton

Can you tell I cut the monsters out of this picture ;-)

 and then I bought Abigail a milk and cookie shirt because you know, I do that.
 and Abigail wore the milk & cookies outfit to her first dentist appointment.
Thank you to my friend for the fun cookie request!

Forest Animal Cookies for Baby Aidan & New Cutters Too

Did I tell you my daughter is pregnant? As in, very pregnant?! As in due next month?! And little 14-month old Abigail is going to be a big sister! That is so weird to think. My daughter and son-in-law are going to have their hands full to say the least. Personally, I can't even comprehend it. When little tornado, I mean Abigail, comes over, my house looks very different and now there will be two tiny ones coming to visit. Can't quite wrap my brain around it just yet.

So this weekend we had a baby "sprinkle" for Mellissa. My mom and step-daughter, Sarah, hosted the fun event. We played silly games like suck on a pacifier and spit it out and the person spitting the pacifier the farthest won a prize and draw a baby on a paper plate while the plate was on your head and you couldn't see what you're drawing. Lots of giggles and sillyness. And I made cookies.
The theme was originally forest animals because that is the theme of baby Aidan's nursery, but then Sarah and my mom changed the theme to include "No Pink Allowed" hmmmmmmm.... I basically have two things in my closet that are not pink - a SF Giants shirt and a Black Belt shirt. That's it. So I stayed with the forest animal theme for the cookies. So there ;-)
