I had an overwhelming desire to make a turkey cookie. And not just any turkey cookie, a big detailed one.
I have no idea where these compulsive urges come from. Anyway, I cut out the dough, baked it, cooled it, outlined and flooded it, when cookie disaster struck. I opened a cabinet door above the cooling rack and a variety of kitchen odds and ends came tumbling out and landed right on top of said cookie. OK, I know I need to better organize my cabinets, but that's another story. The flood icing had only partially set up, and the end result was lots of dents. At this point I may have uttered an expletive or two.
I could have done the turkey on that side to cover it up, but I didn't. I decided to LIKE the "texture" it added to the cookie, and leave it alone.
I love happy accidents! Isn't the vintage book under it sweet? It is titled A Dear Little Girl's Thanksgiving Holiday and was published in 1924.
I have so many ideas swirling around in my head for the upcoming holidays, I don't know what to do first! There will be fun cookies and confections galore, and I am going to do a post on my favorite cookie baking and decorating tips. I have learned a lot in the last ten months (mostly the hard way...), and I want to share it with all my holiday baking buddies out there!
