Sesame Street Cookies!
So I just had to share these. I picked up a Cookie Monster cookie press in a thrift store a couple years ago and never got to use it until this week. I love making spritz cookies at christmas with my other cookie press, but this one was so fun because it came with discs that make Elmo, Cookie Monster and Big Bird from Sesame Street! So I tinted the butter cookie dough and got to squeezing! They turned out really cute, especially with the addition of chocolate eyeballs and a chocolate nose for Elmo. I think next time I would use royal icing for the eyes (they started melting before they made it to the party...blasted heat!). My daughter loved helping to squeeze the trigger for these cookies. I think the cookie press will be a Christmas favorite for her...and I bet we'll end up with Elmo Christmas cookies this year!
