Running Behind/Father's Day

So, I dropped the ball on posting my Father's Day cookies!  Its a hard balance of when to post pics, but also keep it a surprise for the person receiving the cookies, especially when they live in the same house where you are making the cookies.  Lucky for my, my husband was out of town a few days prior to Father's Day and I could secretly finish them without spilling the beans.

I apologize in advance for the over-flashed photo.  It was a last minute click with my cell phone.  In all future cookie pictures, I promise to focus more than a minute to take a great picture, so you can actually get an idea of what the cookie looks like!  I made cute little white business shirt cookies and tie cookies.  I loved having a big variety of ties.

For Father's Day, we had a great time having lunch at The Rainforest Cafe and then browsing around all the Disney/Lego stores in Downtown Disney.  I was amazed that I could get all the boys smiling and looking at the camera for the following picture.

Okay, I am off to finish some baby shower cookies (pictures to come), and start cutting out some cookies for the 4th of July!  I cant believe 2013 is more than halfway over! Have a great week!

Handcut Cookies

Graduation Set

What do you do when you cant find a particular cookie cutter?  First you pull out a couple of hairs, then you get crafty.  I was in need of a graduation cap recently and I could not find one anywhere (stores, online, etc). So, I went to Google Images and found a clip art that was the right size/shape and printed it on thick cardstock. Cut it out to size and hand cut around the template for my cookies.  No, I would not suggest this for more than a dozen cookies, but it is worth it for a few cookies.

Now I am off to start planning some Father's Day cookies!
