I killed our refrigerator the other day (basically…trying to defrost the freezer I ended up puncturing something that made a huge whhhooOOOOOOSSSSSHHHHHHHHHHHHHH sound – which Google confirmed was the freon and not an easy fix).  It was kind of embarrassing, but I will say that we needed a new one anyway because this was the second time that the freezer had frozen up which kept the refrigerator from being in temp.  That, and I also had to keep a bowl in the back of it to catch water coming from…somewhere…..

Anyway, we had a new one delivered today.  But that’s not actually why I’m blogging.  The real reason is that I wanted to post some pictures of the cookies I made yesterday (with the butter and eggs that were still okay though not 41 degrees) and I feel kind of silly posting stuff on Facebook unless it’s, you know, interesting.

I got a huge bag of vintage cookie cutters at Southern Thrift a few weeks ago.

There were several more, but these were the best.  Using up the butter and eggs was a perfect excuse for making cookies and using these cutters, though (I guess if I had made them on Fat Tuesday, that would have worked just as well).  I decided not to try to ice them at all since the designs are so cute.

(Sorry that it’s so washed out.  I didn’t check the film setting on the app first….)


Aren’t they the cutest cookies EVER??!  Now I just need to find someone to eat them all since I will otherwise (and Matt won’t … as I believe I’ve complained about before).

I'm a young, childless widow who is trying to figure out the best way to deal with the world in light of my late husband's suicide. It's harder than I ever imagined it would be, but somehow at the same time I am still alive and even happy sometimes.

  1. Oh, you had fun!! It feels good to be productive, and if you can be productive and have fun at the same time, so much the better. Bravo!


  2. Making cookies is always fun! Someone told me that you’re supposed to decorate this type of cookie with food coloring and water (kind of paint them), since the cookie cutters are so intricate. If I had known that before I ate most of them, they would look even prettier! Next batch….
