It’s my nephews 2nd birthday this weekend and his mother asked me to make Chocolate Chip Cookies for his party because they will do a Sesame Street party. Clearly the Cookie monster will show up and demand some cookies. 😉 So here I am, making cookies.

When most people think about North America/USA/Canada and cookies they think Chocolate Chip Cookies. I love them myself but I also love variety, so Peanut Butter Cookies seem to be a good way to switch it up. Unless you are allergic to peanuts, in that case you should stay away from them. Fortunately, neither am I not my husband allergic and so I baked some last night. My husband is a little cookie monster, having cookies in the cookie jar is a must. I promised for ages to make some more but never had the time.
I was asked the other day to make some Dora and Diego cookies, the main characters of the “Dora the Explorer” TV cartoon. Sugar cookies and Royal icing here I come! This was something new for me because I mostly do regular cookies, desserts and cakes, not so much decorated cookies. But I took on the challenge and I think it turned out pretty good. Sure, there are those cookie magicians who can do crazy things with Royal Icing and they would have done a better job. Yet, I think I did the best I can and the characters are recognizable.
May I introduce to you: Helene. She won the Easter Giveaway Contest and was quite excited about the cookie cutter from the beginning. They arrived in New Zealand on time and she sent me a pictures of her cookie. So I asked her if she would be so kind to write a guest post for the blog. She had the same thought and was happy to write something for me. Here is her thoughts on baking, cookies and blog entries.
There is one more Easter treat I will share with you, however, first I have a classical cookie for you. (I know that Easter baking is a bit late now but a) I was busy and b) I am not one of those who bakes a month beforehand.) This is the first cookie I ever made in Canada. Basically, my husband urged me to make them, he’s a fan, major fan. As he said while I made them: “Best cookie evaaaa!” Love my hubby, he has his real funny moments once in a while. The Oatmeal cookie is another classic I shall say in North America. My husband likes his with chocolate chips.
Believe it or not, but it took me almost two years to make these North American classics. I mean, chocolate chip cookies are the symbol of North America. You see them in movie and TV shows and, well, there always seems to be a big deal about them.
It is March, which means ins some parts of the world spring is on its way. Well, here in lovely Saskatoon spring will have a later appearance, we still have snow everywhere. Actually, we had a snow storm the other day but we hope warm weather is on its way. If you don’t have the colours outside you should make sure you have them inside, on your plate, or in your hand for that matter. These lovely cookies are the perfect opportunity and so much fun to look at.
