“More star peaaaase”

July 12th, 2006 by Susannah


Eloise and I made cookies this morning. She doesn’t get many foodie treats because of the dairy thing. I feared these gingerbread cookies may be a bit too spicy, but no, sure enough she comes toddling over and drags me into the kitchen asking for ‘more star peaaseee, more star’. (this also explains why only one star made its way into the photo above!)

Cooking doesn’t come naturally to me, actually I’m not very good at it at all. So when I had to improvise and use a wine bottle as a rolling pin I freaked out a little. I think I also overcooked them a bit….but hey…my little customer isn’t complaining….although she did call my gingerbread man a bear!

    Ha !

    I always use a wine bottle too ( wrap in Glad Wrap to allow said bottle to assume alter-ego identity )

    Classic. Not just me then 😉

    So cute! And hey, welcome to the club for the baking-challenged 🙂 My most recent disaster involved Devil’s food cupcakes – Eloise could have eaten them, because I forgot the milk!

    these look totally yum! Very impressive! I could make the cookies, but there is no way I could get the icing to be that neat! My little one would love these!
