EEEwwwww there's a hair in my cookie!

Not really, but that would be pretty gross. I do make sure to tie back my hair when I'm baking.
I made some cookies for my hair girl, Kristin.  I've been seeing her for maybe 8 years or more?  That sentence sounded kind of personal. Do you ever notice that you tell your hair dresser more than you ever imagined you would?  I guess if you see them every 8-10 weeks they get to know a lot about you. I think they must have some sort of class on listening in hair cutting school because if you open your ears in a salon you hear an awful lot.
Ruffolo's in Kenosha is a great place to get yourself done. Hair, nails, makeup, ear candling, they do it all.  And no, I have never had my ears candled.

I didn't have a scissors cookie cutter so I made one out of two others that I have. A large heart and a party hat.

Of course there are cookie cutters that you absolutely can't do without such as Santa or the Easter bunny.  But I don't think I'll use the scissors shape very often. This is a great way to repurpose your existing cutters. If you look close at the second picture, you'll see how I shaped them together.  When they bake, they seal together - very easy!

I hope the girls at Ruffolo's enjoyed their cookies!

Occasionally when I'm baking or cooking Amelie has to entertain herself. She races for the refrigerator every chance she gets (and the garbage can, but we won't talk about that.)  If you can see that lemon she is gnawing on, you'll see that I have my doubts that she has inherited my sweet tooth.
