Making Your Cookie Cutters Work for You

The doctor theme continues!  These medical / golf-themed cookies were made as a gift for a doctor's retirement.

I don't actually have many doctor or golf cookie cutters, so I had to get a little bit creative for this package.  It seems like there's a cookie cutter for everything these days, but it's also important to remember that lots of cutters can be improvised to work for other things.  That way, when you get a last minute order you don't need to worry about rush ordering cookie cutters!  Here's what I used to make these doctor cookies:

I was lucky that I had a fire truck cutter, so it was pretty obvious how to turn this into an ambulance - just cut off the ladder!  The doctor coat was also easily modified from a onesie cutter.  And the bandaid was actually a flower that I cut the sides off of.

I made some similar modifications to create these golf cookies:

I'm sure you can tell how the golf shirts were made - that onesie cutter comes in handy!  The golf bag was a baseball hat turned on it's side and the flip flop cutter made a perfect golf green.  The clubs were made by slightly modifying a candy cane cookie cutter.

So next time you want to try something new, put away your credit card and go digging through your cookie cutter collection!  You might be surprised what you find there (or at least I usually am)!

New Doctor Cookies

I made these cookies recently for a new doctor who just started his residency in the ER.  He's also an avid fisherman, so the request was for a combined package of medical and fishing-themed cookies.  I pretty much had free reign to design any cookies that I wanted, so they were a lot of fun to make!

Best of luck in your residency Sammy!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July everyone!  I was a little short on time and ideas this year for Independence Day, so I decided to make these flag cookies that I saw on Sweet SugarBelle's blog.  She has a great tutorial that I followed pretty much exactly.  They were fun and simple, just like she advertised, and they were a fun project for my Mom and I this weekend!

I hope everyone enjoys spending time with their family and friends this Independence Day!
