Oh, I need these!

I'm planning on making Christmas gifts for friends this year.  Kathie, cover your eyes.   I was thinking about doing homemade s'mores - well, homemade marshmallows and graham crackers not homemade chocolate.  Then, while cruising Food Gawker I came across a blog that featured these cookie cutters...I think I've GOT to have them!  There are a couple of shops in my area that carry them, so I'll be looking for them and if I can't find them, I'm definitely ordering them online.

Now, if you know me, you know why these appeal to me - I have this total goofball sense of humor and these feed right into it (ha! that's funny and I wasn't trying to be..."feed right into it" and they're cookie cutters...get it?).  Plus I have four kids who are always right under foot when I'm in the kitchen.  I can well imagine one of my kids biting the arm, leg or head off any gingerbread men I'm trying to make as gifts.  After saw what happened to my birthday cake, right?  Oh, you didn't?  My two-year-old helped herself to about one-third of one of the layers while it was cooling so my cake ended up looking like this...

Yeah, that 1/3rd of a layer is gone due to the gnoshing of a two-year-old foodie.  :)  So, now do you see the appeal of the gingerbread men cookie cutters - at least their appeal to me?


  1. But if you use those cookie cutters, you're depriving your children of the fun of actually biting the arms and legs and heads off! Oh, the cruelty of it all! ;)

  2. LOL I agree with Jennifer:)

    I would come over and bite the arms and legs off the cookies for you.

  3. I'm cracking up (with my eyes closed, of course). I think these are hysterical. I love them! For the two previous posters: there are still some parts to bite off :D

  4. Gina,
    Thanks for your comment at

    I felt kind of like that 3rd gingerbread man....Lost my head!

    All things work for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to His purposes...(Rom. 8:28

    Good luck with the prize
