Earl's 4th of July Snack

Hey everyone! At Earl's ~subtle~ request I did give my new cookie cutter a try and think they turned out cute. I tried a new recipe, one my friend Joni at Red Couch Recipes uses. It's very tasty, especially as raw dough, I don't usually snack on that but this was very good...

This is a very light "tablescape" but I still wanted to join in!

  11. How clever to make your cookies patriotic! They're soooo cute. That cookie boy looks like he's scared of Earl. Probably with good reason. :)

  15. Well I wouldn't have thought to do gingerbread(ish)men for 4th of July...but why not? They look really cute. I always end up with frosting all over the place. This holiday has really crept up on me...haven't given it much thought. I need to get my red, white and blue on!!

  28. When I was growing up, we could not wait to scrape the bowl of whatever our mother was cooking. Cookie dough is the best.

  33. Your cookies are darling! What a talent you have. My oldest daughter is like that, she didn't get it from me. That's why I like the country look. Gingerbread with a thick spread of white glaze. No details for me!

    Blessings, Debbie

  48. Visiting via Diann's Thrifty Tablescape party. Your patriotic cookis just make me smile! Over and above Earl's challenge. I am sure the artistic talent is yours but also know Earl helped clean the mixing bowl.
    The recipe sounds much like one from my childhood that I think needs revisiting.

    I am seeing your pickles mentioned all over the blogosphere.
    Happy 4th!
