New Home Cookies

My good friend wanted to give cookies to her brother and his girlfriend who just bought a new home. I love when she tells me to just come up with something on my own.

Cookies for a couple who just moved into a new home!

Any place can be a home as long as your heart resides there. I thought the stacked heart cookies was a cute idea.

Some plaques to welcome them home and congrats on building a new house!

This cutter is Sugarbelles design that can be found here and Karen's Cookies. It is a school bus cutter but I turned it into a moving van. I have seen so many clever ways to use this cutter it is a great cutter to have.

Thanks for the order Laura and I hope that they loved their home cookies!

Sports birthday, basketball and soccer cookies!

For a young 10 year old who lobes BYU and sports. 

Basketballs are pretty simple and round cookie with orange icing and black lines. Then I thought I should make it a bit more realistic and decided to add a BUNCH of dots for texture..... that took a little time.

Told myself I would not do them like that again but every time I do a basketball I end up doing it!

Bacon cookies??? It all about Pork!

One of my best friend father-in-law wanted to get some cookies as a practical joke for a friend of his. I don't really know the whole story but I guess they go back and forth playing jokes on each other over many years. Well the friend is Jewish and so he wanted to send him some "kosher" cookies for his birthday. On the box I had specific instructions to label as...

Southern Kosher Cookies
(The Ultimate in Bad Taste) 

He just asked me to write out the names of different pork products on the cookies but I thought it would be fun to add some pictures as well. This is what I cam up with. I used edible ink pens to do the drawings.

I thought it was strange at first but I think they came out cute in the end!!
Thanks Ed and Evonne for taking me out of my comfort zone. :)
