This batch will look a little familiar – considering I used a picture of them as the background for this blog when it was originally launched. I actually made these cookies a couple years ago, but they are still one of my favorite batches to date. (I probably say that a lot.) But these were rather unique. A friend of mine approached me about making a custom batch of cookies for a baby shower she was attending for a coworker.
She sent me links to the bedding that the mom-to-be had registered for and asked if I could use the colors and at least one of the shapes in there as a guide. Here are the pics I was given:
I knew the colors would be pretty easy to match, and narrowed the shapes down to the leaf, the owl, and the frog. I got really lucky and happened to find an owl cookie cutter that was very similar to the owl in the bedding. I have to be honest though, I didn’t have a lot of confidence that I’d be able to make them look like the owl on those sheets. Fingers were crossed big time on these…
Side note: I’ve learned a few random things since starting this blog and posting these pics:
- I desperately need new cookie sheets – mine are looking pretty sad
- My photography skills are lacking (but you get the point)
Special thanks to Lindsey for the order for these cookies!
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! I will be working on Christmas cookies very soon, but I have some other ideas in the mix for this month as well. Suggestions always welcome!
