Chicky Cookies

I wanted to make some little chicky cookies for Easter. I thought about them for a long time. And then I thought a lot about how little chickens are actually kind of gross and not cute at all. And they make an awful noise. But chicky cookies are WAY better than that. And I thought about so many different kind of chicky cookies, that I just couldn't narrow it down to ONE design. I couldn't do it. I couldn't choose ONE and throw all the other adorable faces out the literal window to fend for themselves in the barely-still-winter-and-not-yet-spring cold. Nope. Couldn't do it.

So I made them all. Even the weirdy ones. (You'll see.)

I made these fuzzy little things. And almost stopped right there. 

But then these guys would have been so sad. And no one wants to see a sad Easter chicky. (I can't decide if I like the outlined chicky or the non-outlined one better.)

These are my shell guys.

My husband calls these the House of Mirror chickies. Except, he obviously doesn't use the word "chicky." Because he's a man. And he doesn't use "cute" words. He uses words like "circular saw" and "pushups." (I told you I made "weirdy" ones.)

And I had to make a little lady just to round things out a bit.

And after all was said and done...I ended up with a favorite. And I won't tell you which one. But I will tell you this -- If you come back later ... tomorrow...  umm, sometime in the near future, I will not only tell you which one it is....I will show you how to make it yourself. 

Which one is YOUR favorite?

the eggshell bum one is so cute but I love the feminine chick too. SO cute.

Well, I love the first ones because they look like little kids in chicken costumes and the femmy little girl with the flower in her hair wins for the cute factor BUT my favorite is definitely Birdy LongLegs. Do I win? Do I win? Oh wait. It's not a contest. Nevermind.

The eggshell ones are too cute especially the one with the crack, because all bakers love cracked eggs! And I love the background colors you chose for them, really adorable.
