Finn and I were reading his Cookie Monster book where Cookie scarfs a bunch of different-shaped cookies yesterday. I thought--Hey! Finn and I should make cookies and use the cookie cutters to make different shapes! Man, am I a great mom or what?
So, we pushed a chair up to the counter and started putting all the ingredients together. Finn mixed them up and helped himself to the sugar. I edited the applesauce-oatmeal cookie recipe that I had to include pumpkin puree and a few other spices.
WELL--we had a couple of hitches. First, I forgot that the only cookie cutters I own are a star, a stocking and a Christmas tree. And, the recipe I made wasn't really for roll out cookies. They were more the globby kind that you drop on a cookie sheet. I disregarded these facts and decided that Halloween sprinkles would make them perfect anyway. Our cookies ended up looking like this:
Delicious, huh? I bet you would love one! (I ended throwing them all away b/c they tasted like poo).
