I’m a member of a photography group that decided to do Secret Santa this year… We were limited to a few dollars, so we had to be creative. Facebook stalking to find out non-photography interests, googling for cool products, etc. Some people got memory card wallets, lenses hollowed out and turned into cups, mini camera-shaped thumb drives, etc… When I received a package that said “Warning: Stow-away-asaurus’ I was thoroughly confused… but when I opened it up confusion turned to happiness as I saw a set of camera-shaped cookie cutouts. I love sugar cookies, so this will give me more reason to make them. Traveling the better part of the past month, I just now got around to being able to actually use them…. Photography never tasted so good. (Then again, it doesn’t really ever taste… hrm…)
Oh, P.S. After I made these I had a little leftover dough… so I ate some raw (mmmm!) and made the rest into a nice big heart which I planned to surprise Colleen with in the morning (she had gone to bed). I proceeded to forget about in the oven for 45 minutes until Colleen awoke and yelled from the bedroom, “Is something burning?!?!”. Yea, I made a black, smoldering heart. 🙁
And P.P.S. When making cutouts, you can’t put the doughy cookies as close together as I show in the photos of the cookie-sheet… they spread and make one BIG cookie. Stupid Joey..
