I have been in this strange mood lately. You know those crazy moods--when you become randomly obsessed with something that has never before interested you? This is how I am with cookies at the moment. And let me tell you, my metabolism needs more than a few jumping jacks to pay for it!
Cookie art may be beautiful, but trust me, making beautiful cookies takes time, practice, and LOTS of clean-up! A couple of summers ago, I was inspired to master the art myself. One hundred burned or malformed cookies later, I retired. I decided to stick with what I know and leave bakery art to professionals!
Looking at these fun cookies makes me want to try again. However, the vivid memory of the cooking aftermath keeps re-appearing in my mind and stops me from doing it. Ugh, but they are so cute!!
