Sugar Cookies for the Family reunion!

I made these cookies for my annual Camp Reunion in Lake Tahoe at Rustic Cottages, in Tahoe Vista.  A very cute lodge with many large cabins and also several tiny cabins!  We love it there!  It’s not right on the beach, but it’s right across the street from one of the best beaches, and close to grocery stores, restaurants, and the local library!

My aunt asked me to bring crawdad cookies after we got the idea from a young 15 year old.  We met  her  The Cameron Park Golf Course. She was telling me about her Cakes for Crohn’s business which she made a Crawdad cake for a friend.  My uncle told me to make a cake, but alas he got cookies!

Paint Palettes and Paintbrushes

I wanted to do these cookies for some time, and so it was extra fun to do them and give them to my aunt who is a great artist!  My mom would have loved these cookies also!  It is her recipe after all, so of course she would love the cookies!  Plus she was also a great artist!

Pictures are a few paint palettes surrounding one paint brush sugar cookie.
Perfect cookie for the artist!

This paint palette was made from the polar bear cookie!  I cut off the head, and evened out the feet and added a hole for the artists palette.  The paint brushes I used my carrot cookie cutter, and the top part of the carrot was the bottom part of the paint brush!  I trimmed the carrot edges to make them more like a paint brush, they are abstract.







Not like these paint brush cookies…….

These are gorgeous! They look so real!

Happy Friday!  Martini’s on me!  Time to relax for the weekend, make some drinks put on the flip flops and it’s California so of course we are all sitting under palm trees.

I made these for my uncles birthday in July.  I think this is actually a small margarita glass but I made it into the martini.

He likes the cookies but his grandchildren enjoy them just as much if not more! Truthfully the whole family enjoys the cookies, except maybe one or two people who may not like the sugar cookies.   I never knew a kid that refused one.
