Snickerdoodles and Shortbread and Little Red Hens, Oh My!

I love cookies.  Why? Because you can eat a lot of them, and say to yourself that you’re just having one more.  Whereas cake, you just feel guilty going for slice #3.  Cookies can have all sorts of textures and flavors combined in one little bite, which makes for a party in your mouth.

My newest order went to a wonderful coworker who’s son was participating in “The Little Red Hen” play.  He was a piggy.  So, to celebrate this occasion, I decided to do an assortment of different cookies, as well as some super cute sugar cookies decorated as farm animals (to go along with the whole farm/Little Red Hen theme).

I tried to get different flavors, textures and appearances of cookies when thinking about my mix.  The final verdict was: Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies, M&M Cookies *my favorite*, Cranberry Shortbread, Caramel Filled Snickerdoodles and Mini Gluten Free Vanilla Wafers.

Some close ups:


Although these cookies were beyond yummy, the best part of the bunch had to be the decorated sugar cookies.

It’s hard to pick a favorite from this bunch, but I have to say my favorite overall feature has to be their beady little eyes.

In the end, cookies were had by all, and my coworker’s little “piggy” son enjoyed a piggy cookie.  Awesome.
