Meh. Not as good as I’d hoped.

Those dumb cookies are done, and they are not what I had hoped.

Sometime in elementary school we did an ‘art’ project where we took half a heart, cut off a strip around the edge, glued that down; cut another strip, glued that down on the opposite side; back and forth etc. It looked something like this:


I wondered if you made red-and-white pinwheel cookie dough (but more an oval shape than a wheel shape), cut it on a severe diagonal, flipped it and reassembled, would the cut cookies look like those hearts?


Would it?


Dang. That cut is lopsided. Rats.


Avert your eyes! Cookie guts! (This dough was too warm. Should have let it chill longer.)

Anyway, the lopsided heart-shaped dough log chilled for days, then I did the ol’ slice-n-bake on ‘seasoned’ -not dirty – ‘seasoned’ cookie sheets.


Changes should be made, but I’m too tired to revamp these.


After baking, the pointy part wasn’t very pointy, so they kind of look like mutant mittens.

Next year, cookies. Next year.

    How interesting and weird that you invented those. You’re a food artist.

    WOW! Those are super cool. If it didn’t involve rolling out dough, I might be interested in trying it…
