Sesame Street in cookies

So, the last cookies I made were all one color. White. And it was wonderful. And then I made these cookies and I had to mix more colors than I have ever mixed at one time in my entire life. (Although to be fair...I totally made my husband mix some of them. And he was really nice about it because he loves me and our child.) I didn't want to do it. But I had to. Because my son asked me to. And what is the point of having a mother who makes fun cookies if she won't come through when you REALLY NEED her to?

See, Sesame Street is coming HERE, to our tiny little town in South Korea. We live in a town so small that most people in Korea have never heard of it. But Sesame Street has heard of it. And they will be here TONIGHT. And my little boy desperately needs cookies to take to...Cookie Monster and Elmo.

He wants to give cookies to Cookie Monster for obvious reasons, but also to Elmo because he just loves that guy. Me? I'm partial to the Cookie Monster. Especially when he's squishing a rolling pin. These guys are actually all from a cookie cutter set I bought in 1942. Ha ha. Just kidding. But it IS a super old set. So old that Elmo didn't even really, umm -- close the ears of all nearby children -- exist.    **Gasp**   -- I KNOW, what kind of world was that?  So, I used the Ernie cutter and smooshed some and cut some and managed to get this guy. THANK GOODNESS, since he's pretty much the star of my little boy's show.

Although, after staring at these cookies for awhile, he's kind of getting more interested in "the guy in the box." (That would be Oscar.) And as far as copyright infringement goes...I guess I'm kind of hoping that Sesame Street doesn't sue me for giving them cookies.

Super cool!

How awesome!! I'm making Elmo cookies this week for a birthday party and have decided to do just his face. The first thing I thought when I saw the photo (besides AMAZING WORK!!) is how tedious it must have been to mix all those icings together. Definitely my least favorite part of cookie decorating.

How lucky are you to have that cutter set! Fantastic job! I am also doing Elmo this week, just a head version, but isn't amazing how popular these characters are after 40+ years?

These are AMAZING. They will love them. (Especially after that crap the contestants on Top Chef made for them.)

We have old Sesame Street books, and Elmo actually did exist a long time ago (although I can't say he was one of the originals). He just didn't seem to have a name or personality yet. He appears without being featured, but there's no question: It's who we now know as Elmo!

Those are just adorable! Absolutely Amazing! I love how cookie and oscar came out (they are all fantastic but I'm partial to those guys). As for copyright infringement- well you used a cutter set you bought so presumably it was a officially licensed set. And making these for your son/giving them to the Elmo and Cookie Monster means you are using them for personal not commercial use so you're ok. Just don't make and sell these cookies to anyone and you won't be infringing as far as I can see.

These are fantastic. I never knew Sesame Street until I had kids. It was on the fuzzy channel when I was growing up! I think kids love Elmo because he is smart but doesn't have an adult voice. I love them all....what fun!

Georganne these are so incredibly beautiful! When I saw your post on Facebook, I thought it was just a picture of Sesame Street, I didn't realize it was cookies!!! Fantastic job! I bet your son was so incredibly excited!

Bell Family said...

Love it!! Awesome colors!! Have a fun night. I want details!

Your cookies are as timeless and as fun as Sesame Street itself. Hope your son enjoys the show. Such fun for him to both see the show and have these awesome cookies.
Great presentation of them too!
