Hi everyone! How was the weekend for you all? Busy making Christmas preparations? I had a Christmas party on Saturday night which was good fun. I baked a cheesecake to bring along, but alas forgot to take a photo of it for the blog =( Oh well…next time.
Anyway! I was trying to narrow down a list gifts I wanted to give to my friends…I wanted to make truffles, shortbread, cupcakes, etc. But then my siblings gave me some ningabread men cookie cutters for my birthday and I thought it would be fun to make some ninja cookies as gifts. Something different and fun, right?
So here they are!
I used a chocolate cookie recipe since I had bookmarked it since ages ago (recipe here), and there were a couple of kids I was giving these too. They were SO GOOD! They’re seriously like homemade oreos, except a little more crumbly. They tasted nice and chocolate-y.
One of my friends absolutely loved them and exclaimed many were armless and legless. Some were even headless. We both agreed there was just something about men-shaped cookies and eating the arms and legs first. haha. How sadistic =.=” It’s the same with Tiny Teddys – I ALWAYS eat the ears first, then the arms and legs. haha.
I’m glad my friends and family enjoyed these cookies. Awesome cookie cutters put to good use =)
I’ll be submitting this to the Aspiring Bakers #14: Creative Christmas Bakes (December 2011), hosted by Hankerie.
Thanks for reading! ^^ Have a great week ahead, everyone!
