slang term. I feel cheated somehow. All that time...wasted. Oh sure, I could convince myself that I was on a quest to better myself, that somehow it was the journey that mattered. I could tell my children that their unanswered pleas for a third snack were all in the name of enlightenment and greater good for the...umm...for the...greater good of goodness. And stuff.
I'd like a refund on my afternoon please.
Now that I think about it...I don't really care what it is called. What I want to know is who came up with that design? I mean, it's like someone grabbed a spare piece of cardboard and glued it to a hat that strangely resembles a bowl. And then...because that wasn't weird enough, they also took some odd piece of rope they had lying around and dyed it to match the school colors, frayed up the ends and attached that to the top of the cardboard. If you ask me, it sounds like the mother of some young child was having a rough afternoon and needed something to entertain her children while she did some internet research...wait a minute....
Anyway...these cookies. Books. Graduation hat things. Cookie. Icing. Want to?
2. These cookies are easiest with a thicker, 18 count icing. Start with the bottom book. Go ahead and pipe on something that looks suspiciously like a tuning fork. And then do another one a bit above that. Oh, and then, pipe on a cave. Except, it won't be a cave in the end. It just looks like one right now. Let that dry for 30 minutes or one game of Battleship. Whichever comes last.
3. Fill in the missing elongated tuning forks and then pipe a diamond shape around your cave. Battleship rematch. Try to win this time.
4. Add the white paper bits and a piece of rope that is dyed to match the school colors. Let everything percolate over night.
Ha ha ha ha ha. I'm totally kidding. That was the best joke ever. Oh man, I'm still laughing....
Callye at The Sweet Adventures of SugarBelle used it for a graduation cookie, too. Don't go kissing on her cookies or anything though, because that would be totally weird. More weird than cardboard-bowl-rope hats.
