My daughter in law asked me if I have a cookie cutter for St. Nicholas.
Or if I would consider making cookies for Aidan for that day in December.
I looked at my cutters and I have many of St. Nick dressed up as Santa- but none in his bishop’s robes. So I am going to cut them out freehand and decorate the cookies with appropriate crosses and mitres and bishop’s crook.
But seriously, I have hundreds of cookie cutters. I have made thousands of cut outs over the years I have been baking professionally and you would think I had at least one St. Nick.
I have bears and soldiers, snowmen and bells, pigs and cats, flowers and horses-
rabbits and lions and gingerbread boys and girls.
reindeer, woodland deer and moose- hands and feet.
Ra bbits and birds…
But not even one St. Nicholas.
No, not one- but possibly two.
I was working with some rather strange shaped “santas” last night and look what I came up with!
Some cookie cutters just don’t look like anything specifically.
Decorating them can be a real art project!
