cookie cutter sandwich

Let's wrap things up with this whole "huge giant birthday party that makes my child happy for days and days." I told you about the cookies. I told you about the cake. I have just one more thing to tell you about. Maybe two. But no more than that. I promise. Probably.

I made one more, vaguely cookie/cake related thing for his party. And by "vaguely related" I mean, not at all.  Really, its just an alternative use for cookie cutters.







Is this not the most delicious looking peanut butter and jam sandwich you have ever seen? It probably would be if you were nearly 4 years old. Or apparently the mother of someone who is nearly 4 years old.

I think this is why my child puts up with this cookie/cake thing I do. Because he gets sandwiches in whatever shape he likes. I have to say, its not a bad compromise for either of us.

Oh...and I also made blue ice cubes in my seashell molds. That is all.

Here in the uk you can get great sandwich cutters that cut sandwiches into jigsaw pieces or dinosaurs, and cut the crusts off! My 4 year old loves them. What we mums do for our 4 year olds. Its not at all to do with us wanting crazy crust-less sandwiches at all, not really, well ok it IS, but well, who doesn't want cute sandwiches ha ha.x

Natalie -- I think I have the same dinosaur cutter!! That was the beginning of it all...

CantStopBaking -- I actually don't have pictures of this one! I consciously decided not to, because who would want to see them? Ha ha ha. Next time....I'll take the pictures!

I totally do that to my BF's sandwhiches when I pack them for lunch! But I leave the cutout in the crust so he can still eat the whole sandwhich.

I can attest that this also works on five year olds who are cranky in the morning because they stayed up too late the night before even though you told them to stop singing "What do you do with a problem like Maria" all night long.

Especially if you have small music note shaped cutters.

Be sure to point out that the external bits form the shape in the negative space to get 'em to eat the whole thing...
