Breakfast cookies

No, this isn't a recipe for healthful fiber and raisin filled "delights".  These cookies are for all the times we reach for something fast in the morning, instead of taking the time for a proper breakfast.  Not that I would EVER have a cookie, piece of cold pizza, cupcake, or leftover porkchop.  No sir, not me.  There is one thing, though, that I can't be without in the morning.  COFFEE.

Ah, thats better, a strong cup of coffee and jam on my toast.  Actually, the idea for this baking session came from one of my daughter's best friends (hi Chloe!), who has been suggesting bacon cookies.  I got the "bacon" to look bumpy by cooling the cookies on top of these.

To make the egg shapes, I cut out circles and then trimmed them up so they were more irregular looking.  I know I have never fried an egg and had it make a perfect circle.

To make the toast, I cut the dough using a piece of bread as a template.

I've been on a lollypop smashing binge, and today was no exception.  2 pink + 1 purple lollypop smashed, melted, and poured onto waxed paper.

See my coffee cup?  I got in Eagles Mere Pa - my favorite place on earth.  If you ever want the most glorious relaxing weekend with outstanding food, stay at the Eagles Mere Inn

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to make myself a bowl of steel cut Irish oats with flaxseed and fat free organic milk.  Got to jog today too...
