It's all Fun and Games until...

Little ones wanted small tiny cookies to go with their tea party, and so we took out some butter, flour, sugar and eggs, threw them into the mixer, then into a piping bag, and this is the result from half of a butter cookie recipe...The first batch was stars, followed by another baking tray of swirls. Then mommy had to play with the rest of the cookie dough, and this resulted.OK. What happened was my hands were tired from squeezing the piping bag with a little star tip, so I thought I'd make a little mouse. But what emerged from the oven was floppy ears, and a big fat mouse with a blury 2008 on it's back. LOL!
