Today's stuff: pumpkin gingerbread cookies I made for Halloween:
Wow, that photo didn't look nearly as blurry while on my phone. Sorry about that.
I used this recipe. It was good, but the bake time was a little long for me, so my first few batches (the recipe makes a LOT of cookies) were pretty burnt. I didn't have time to wait for the cookies to cool, make icing and wait for it to set, so I used toasted pumpkin seeds for my decoration. All the cookies looked like surprised anime characters (there were also cats and a couple of other shapes). In case you're wondering about the helmet and football, those were for a friend who missed watching his game to hang out. As for the dinosaurs...everyone loves dinosaurs. Are you really questioning dinosaur cookies?
OK, fine. I have a bucket of 101 cookie cutters, and I'm determined to use them all, regardless of whether or not they're appropriate.
We also had lollipops from http://www.lollyphile.com/
Then, once we were full of sugar, we ran around Manhattan dressed like gangs from The Warriors:
