JGMB, I love the earth design...has a smooth, shiney, tile look to it.

bonniebakes, I love how you incorporated the letter with the flower (or is it the other way around?)

beautiful work, all of you!

Thanks, everyone!!! I'm the one who wrote at the beginning of this thread that I was sick and didn't know if I could participate. Well, after 10 days of being housebound (except one trip to the dr.), I finally feel well enough again to bake party.gif I only made one earth cookie because the rest of the batch were used to celebrate my friend being volunteer of the month at our local food pantry. I made funky "Kay rocks!" cookies that I hope she'll get a kick out of.

I don't really know... it's currently only a thought in my head (and not one I've tried to see if it will work). But those little tins are only about an inch deep, so I guess you could make the cookie part more of a "crust' and have a lot of filling or make the cookie dough thicker than normal. Now I'm excited to try it, but I'm working on my "spring" cookies, so it will have to wait!

all4cake - yes! thanks for noticing the letters match the initial of the flower!

Wow! I love the spring flowers -- how clever to have the flower's name match the letter. Agree that the font is snazzy, also. Love the pale yellow color you used on some of the cookies. That color is one of my faves.

Had to laugh about your 1,000 cookie cutters comment. Mine have over-run the kitchen and now over half of them are stored in the bedroom! (To my husband's chagrin.) icon_smile.gif

And the Earth Day cookie rocks as well! I think the writing looks great! I tried to make a globe Christmas ornament once and it ended up just looking like green and blue all mooshed together -- yours really looks like continents! Very cool!

Oh, wow! Those SPRING cookies are fabulous, Bonnie! My mouth is still hanging open in amazement. And JGMB, if you hadn't said a word about the "recycle" I wouldn't have even noticed it wasn't "perfect". The cookie came out beautifully!

I just came across this thread....and ALL I want to do is make cookies now! These are all fantastic cookies. Hmmmmm what to make, what to make......
post #115 of 205
all those cookies are amazing!!!

bonnie I absolutely love those cookies, I have to do a "spring" cookie bouquet and I'm thinking I make take a stab at your cookies for that. The customer didn't care what it looked like, just wanted a spring theme and I've been stumped for an idea......what says spring more than a bouquet that "SAYS SPRING" LOL


JGMB-love the earth cookies, I would never think all that writing AND the globe could possibly fit neatly on a cookie, and you totally pulled it off! Great job!

JGMB-love the earth cookies! Excellent job! Next Thursday, the 22nd is Earth Day & what a fantastic cookie to bake & give to the children to take to the schools, offices or wherever. Just think, bake up a batch & pass them out to all the hard workers planting flowers & trees in your area. You would surely put a smile on those workers faces. A fantastic cookie for a fantastic day!

did we hit a wall of cookies????

Come on cookiers, let's see some more "spring" cookies! icon_lol.gif

I am thinking of making some gray clouds with the sun popping out from them would that be considered spring?

Husband works as a go to guy at a theater and the are doing a production of Annie. I thought it would be a cute way to do the "the sun will come out tomorrow!"

Sounds spingy enough to me! Don't they say... "April showers bring May flowers...? Your cookie design sounds intriguing!

(Hey, I'm all for a fairly liberal interpretation of the month's theme if it means I get to see more cookies!) icon_biggrin.gif
