i was planning on baking something this weekend. i wasn’t quite sure what i would make until eric and i stopped a baking store in ballard today. we were looking at the cookie cutters and eric was quite fond of a turtle shaped cookie cutter. i bought that little guy along with some yellow food dye and some sprinkles. i also apparently bought myself a parking ticket. who new you had to pay to park even on the weekends. we didn’t really think of checking to see if we had to pay. oh well, at least i can make turtle cookies now.
i used my usual sugar cookie recipe which seems to get better every time i use it and i used and icing recipe that came with the turtle cookie cutter. i mixed quite a few different colors to decorate the cookies and i had some sprinkles too! i forgot to put the sprinkles on the cookies, but i did make a special turtle for eric with sprinkles for a shell.
