postheadericon Anatomy of a cookie

I'm learning to think creatively with my cookie designs!  I've learned this by reading blogs like Sweet Sugar Belle.

I had a request for a "Minnie Mouse" cookie but I did not have a Minnie Mouse cookie cutter.  I sat looking at all my cutters trying to think, how can I do this without buying another "one use" cookie cutter?

The obvious part was tyat the "mouse" would be two different sized circle cutters, 2-1/2 and 1-1/2 inches each.  I settled on a 2-inch mini butterfly to use for the bow.

I then "patched" them together before putting them in the oven.

After they baked and were decorated, you could not tell it was a patchwork cookie!

Bring it on folks!  Keep challenging me to create a cookie without buying another cutter!  I loved the challenge!
