The idea for this project took seed while I was visiting my friend Lori in Louisiana. We found a set of barnyard animal cookie cutters on my last day in Baton Rouge, and I’ve had gingerbread highland cows on the brain ever since! The belted-kilt men are made from a small gingerbread woman cutter I found at the island thrift store soon after I got home.
Considering that I’ve never attempted cookie decorating before (and that I was given a C in Grade 8 art if I promised never to take another class with the teacher ever again), I’m over the moon with how they turned out.
The cows make me coo whenever I walk by them on the kitchen table…I’ve even been caught petting one by My Englishman…but you probably don’t need to know that.
