I love the yarn cookie, and your gma sounds like a wonderful woman!

You asked what I used to write on the chalkboard. It was just glace and a tip 1. I piped it after the black had only set for about 1/2 hour. So, it kind of sunk in instead of sitting on top of the black, but it didn't spread out as it would have if the black had been freshly piped. Hope that makes sense!

LOVE the yarn cookie, letsgetcaking! What a great tribute to your grandma.

Thanks, guys! Thanks for sharing, JGMB. I want to try that sometime. I was wondering why the letters hadn't spread.

All4cake, I made cake mix cookies because I didn't have a lot of time. They're just a cake mix with 2 eggs and 1/3 cup of oil. Then I roll them into small balls and bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. They're really easy, but they taste really good!

Hopefully you'll get your part soon and you'll be back in business.

Cake mix cookies are a lot of fun to play around with the different flavors. We like German chocolate cake cookies and then using coconut pecan frosting to sandwich the cookies. Add peanut butter chips to chocolate cake mix cookies or frost spice cake cookies with cream cheese frosting. They're all SO good!

P.S. The cookies are soft, so I don't think fondant is the best way to decorate them. I just did that this time because it's what I had on hand.

I was at Costco yesterday and they had this edible dough for kids. 3 boxes for about $15. Not a bad price but I had already spent a fortune!
Mix it, color it, shape and bake. It was like playdough only cookie dough!
Is your cake mix cookies like that, using white mix of course!

I bought some of that CostCo dough a couple of months ago and had a great time making shapes with my granddaughter! It spreads a whole lot, though, so not everything really looked like we thought it would! But it was great fun. I found out I have a budding cookie artist on my hands, too! I think it would be fun to try the same thing with a recipe of NFSC dough in different colors. In fact, now that I remember, that's where I got the idea for my hamburger and hot dog cookies from the June cookie club: I colored some NFSC dough and started making bun and patty shapes. I made some cookie franks, too, but they didn't look very good, so I ended up making them out of fondant for the hot dog cookies. Experimenting can be such fun!!!

letsgetcaking - LOVE the yarn cookie! My grandma taught me to crochet.

JGMB - LOVE the chalk board cookie - I'm a former teacher, so that is quite close to my heart.

Oh, wow! Love the teacher cookie and the yarn one, too. What great ideas! Would never have thought of them, but very clever and great cookies!

I have some ideas, but fear I may not have time to do anything this month -- been working a lot of night shifts and overtime (ugh!)

Just wanted to see how we were doing with this month's theme - I've not been on much because we've had 3 straight weeks of a variety of family members in town!

I'm hoping to get some cookies done for this theme this week. Can't wait to see what others are creating!!

I was hoping to get my cookies done this weekend, but two last minute cakes and overtime at work de-railed my plans! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this weekend. Can't wait to see what you create, bonniebakes!
