I'm having such a "duh" moment... 2 of each size! That makes so much sense! I tried those last year and it was a total mess... worst tree I've ever seen! and I had been so excited to try it, too... but I only used one of each size! Poor thing... it looked like someone had smashed it....

thanks endymion - now I have a reason to try again next year!

cookiedoh - what about making the meringue "fluffy" by using thicker RI...? I've done that on cupcake cookies before and if it's thick enough you can still see the piping lines.

I'm not a cookie -er but I am loving reading this tread. I do have a suggestions though. Stacked cookies seem to have become quite the rage: How about if you use the stacked cookies for next months theme?!?

Endymion - Alrighty....I'll give it a whirl. I'm just not that fancy with the piping skills. That's why all my pics are mostly a rolled icing. icon_smile.gif

I have a cut out cookie session coming up, I'll reserve a cookie or two for something. icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the positive thoughts!!!

Thanks everyone for the great "fluffy" ideas! I will definitely be giving some of them a try. I don't have a torch or an airbrush, so I'll have to try some of the other ideas. But I loved the toasting fondant idea. Maybe I can rustle up a torch somewhere! icon_biggrin.gif

I probably shouldn't even admit this icon_redface.gif , but I had a few leftover marshmallows in the cupboard that I was spring cleaning the other day. They were close to going stale, so I skewered them up and toasted them over the gas stove. I hadn't had them in years, and they were sooooo good!!

Bingo!!! Bonnie has got a great idea!!! thumbs_up.gif I wasn't even thinking! I do this with some of my cupcake cookies and it works really well. Kudos to Bonnie for being more awake then I am!

Now I am dying to do a lemon meringue cookie. My kind is going a mile a minute! Oh, well... back to soccer balls! icon_lol.gif

They do taste like lemon thumbs_up.gif And I feel your pain. I've been dieting, too. I had to take the cookies to work to get them out of my house! (No, I would never sit and eat all the cookies after the kids went to bed...you must be talking about someone else icon_redface.gif )

You guys are too funny! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

I, too, am now going to have to try to make me some of those lemon pie cookies. (YUM!)

Ate the birdbath (in stages) yesterday and it was really too over-the-top sweet with all that frosting. If I make it again, I'll cut the sugar in the cookie recipe to compensate for the amount of frosting.

Now I'm off to buy marshmallows (and maybe a blow torch???) icon_lol.gif

We go camping every summer and we always have like 15 bags of marshmallows in our camper LOL when the kids are in bed DH and I sit by the fire eating marshmallows and just talking.....my favorite time....maybe the marshmallows remind me of it?? OR maybe they are just REALLY good!!!! mmmmmmmmm marshmallows..............*droooooooooooollllllll* icon_biggrin.gif

I totally want toasted marshmallows!

I've been thinking about doing pie cookies since I did my pie cupcakes for the VA show last month. I think If you bake a cookie "crust" in one of those disposable pie tins it will come out great. Then when it's cool it should come out easily enough.. I think it would be soooooo yummy filled with lemon curd, chocolate pudding, cherries.... so many options!!

I haven't tried it yet, but it's on my "to-do" list....

What a neat idea, bonnie! Would you make the cookie the regular depth of the pie pan, or shallower to hold less filling than a real pie?

You know those cookies with jam in the middle? (...Are they called thumbprints?...) Maybe you could bake the jam on, like those, and then put a latticed cookie over the top? How fun!!!
