Starfish Cookies

Don’t you just love starfish? Well, maybe not the real thing so much, but these sugar cookies sure are cute! We wrapped these up and gave them to our MOPPETS workers as thank you’s. Included was the following story.

The Starfish Story
Original Story by Loren Eiseley 
One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed 
a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.
Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?”
The youth replied, “Throwing starfish back in the ocean. The surf 
is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.”
“Son,” the man said, “don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach 
and hundreds of starfish? You can’t make a difference.” 
After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, 
and threw it back into the surf. Then, smiling at the man, he said . . .
“I made a difference for that one.”

You can find the cookie recipe here. Enjoy!
