Tama: "Mommy You did it! You made cutout cookies!!" Mommy: "Well they still need a little work since I used too much flour-" Tama: "But you DID IT!!! Now we can make super cute cookies at Christmas!" Po: "Nothing goes better with a cookie than a cup of tea..." Po: "Oh my. This is a rather big cookie isn't it?" Mommy: "So do you like them?" Tama: "Can't talk. Eating." *om nom nom nom* A short while later... Dakota: "Darlin' where did you get the sweets?" Yuriko: *raises the cookie to her mouth* "I found them on a cookie sheet. They looked really cute so they must be mine." Dirk: *just listens* Yuriko: *rapidly starts eating the cookie* Dakota: "Did ya ask Tama if you could have them? I ain't too sure if those might be fer Rainie. You know how much she is obsessed with Hello Kitty." Yuriko: "Nobody was guarding them so... Finders keepers." *stuffs the cookie in her mouth* Dirk: *mumbles* "Does she even eat anything healthy? At all? Ever?" Yuriko: "Tama knows that whenever he makes cookies that I get the first ones. He can always make more. He likes making cookies for is best big sister. And he hasn't done it in a long, long time." Dakota: "Darlin'... Tama is not yer personal baker. Not to mention that he's been working hard with SK to reconfigure a lot of the old recipes. I ain't imagine they would take too kindly to ya eatin' it all up." Yuriko: "Why would they make cookies if they aren't for me?" Dirk: "I think I even heard that they were made from beans. Is that even right?" Dakota: "Ya know ya could share some with us. You have plenty." Yuriko: *sigh* "Okay..." Dirk: "Beans, beans, the magical cookie..." *makes a fart noise and chuckles* Yuriko: *Starts chowing down on another cookie* "So yummy and crunchy..." Dakota: *holds half the cookie her girlfriend gave her* "Honey pie, I think we need ta have a talk about sharing..." Dirk: *speaking with a deadpan tone to his voice as he holds the other half of the same cookie* "Wow. Your generosity is astounding." ~~~~~ Last September I bought these cookie cutters for Tama, before I even knew if they could be used for making cookies at all. I'm so delighted that I can actually use them for actual sugar cookies. This means I'm so very, very close to remaking my mom's gingerbread cookie recipe. Since I was a kid, nothing has meant more Christmas to me than gingerbread cookies with royal icing. I used to sit and decorate batches of them most years. And I always love gingerbread houses even though I've rarely tried to make them. I'm sure most people wonder why I'm so amazed over something as simple as cutout cookies. It just has seemed like the 'impossible' to remake recipes to me. So to have them, keeping their shape enough that Po could pinch it and it didn't even crumble, and despite using garbanzo and soy flour they still taste rather close to wheat cookies. It is such an old habit of mine to challenge myself to tackle the most difficult or impossible things first. I'm just amazed that I managed it, mostly just because of intuition on how the various ingredients work. Also I'm starting to figure out how to DD pics again without going beyond my limits. They may not be the greatest but I'm happy to share their goofy little stories. I hope to go over Dirk's story at some point but it would probably take more of the 'full stage' layout to do it right and that would take a massive amount of energy just to set it up. So if nothing else here's his first snapshot. (He's still a little of a work in progress. I forgot that his hair needs to still be trimmed, once I can figure out how to do it without ruining this wig.) ~SK
