Penguins & Igloos.

It’s incredible how fast the human body can acclimate, you know? After being stationed for 3 winters in Minot, North Dakota (and Alaska & Nebraska before that!), we should *NOT* be cold living in Houston, Texas. However, the 15 months we’ve had down here have somehow tricked my oh-so-sensitive skin into thinking that 40° is just as cold as the -5° we dealt with for months at a time. I felt ashamed when we turned on our furnace when it dropped into the 60’s, even!

We’re such wimps!

Meanwhile, with feeling so “cold” lately, I’ve had all kinds of wintry ideas for cookies, and I thought they would be a fun set to make in one of my beginners’ “Batch Basics” cookie classes. And I’m so glad – for these might be some of my most favorite cookies ever! ♥

Even better, neither cookie was hard to make, and I didn’t have to hand-cut any special shapes. Win! (ter.) 😉

Just look at his little feet! I’m so in love. ♥

I used the Wilton Comfort Grip Snowman with Hat cutter, and it looks like this:

My 12-year-old son Jack found the perfect cookie cutter for my Igloo cookies on the Halloween racks on my wall. I simply sliced off a bit of the cutter to make a straight edge. I can’t find a link to this particular skull online, but I’ve seen several others that would work just as well. 🙂

And together, I think the Penguins & Igloos make a perfectly sweet set… even if it technically isn’t cold enough down here to be freezing temps! 😉
