All last year I wanted to make leaf shaped sugar cookies but I couldn’t find any leaf cookie cutters locally. I didn’t want to buy online, and I couldn’t get down to the big city to check out the cookie cutter store. A whole year has gone by and I finally made not one, but two trips to the big city just to get a leaf shaped cookie cutter!
I guess technically it was three times that I made the trip. The first time we were just passing through and we got there about an hour after the store closed. No big deal, we’ll just stop by on way back through tomorrow. Um, nope. Didn’t happen to notice the sign on the door when stopping by the first time that stated that the business would be closed on the next business day. Oops, a bit out of the way so hubby was not a happy camper. A week later, a special trip, and voila, leaf shaped cookie cutter in my possession! (I’ll also have you know that I purchased a few Christmas ones and another apple because who knows when I will be getting down there again.)
Was it worth it? Absolutely! One happy boy who got to take cookies for his preschool star day, one happy mama who now has a leaf cookie cutter, and one happy hubby who gets to eat the spoils.
I used my tried and true sugar cookie recipe that you can find here.
