Why You Should Never Let Anyone See Your First Draft

I had a Christmas party last night and thought, "Oh!  I've wanted to make these for a fun holiday get-together.  Won't people ooh and ahh?"

That is not what I ended up with.  After much toiling and doodling on wax paper, this is what I got:

Seriously, it's so ugly, I had to keep it at home and eat it myself.  :)

After a little more practice:

Still ugly, but I didn't hear any complaints from the ladies at the party

Sometimes, simplicity is the best policy:

Although, on closer inspection, they look a little like blue boobs.


  1. I think they look great! And my mouth watered a little bit:)

  2. Mine would end up the same way. I would aspire for the first picture and end up with smeared version of the second picture. ;)

  3. I think your cookies look great (and delicious!). Oh, and I love your counter (if that's what is showing in the background!)

  4. awwww your tip was too big!!! a small round is what you needed--not a star!!

    but they still look delicious! :)

  5. Thanks for making me laugh on a Friday morning. Sometimes what we envision doesn't turn out to be reality, does it?

    Although, your second and third attempts were really good!

  6. Those are awesome! Who cares what they look like if they're tasty, right? That's the most important thing. :)

  7. So, I was just reading along, saying to myself, "My what tasty cookies. I could really go for a cookie right now." Then I got to your last line and I seriously think some of my drink came out of my nose from laughing.

  8. I love the last ones.

    And my general rule is three drafts before I let a beta see my work.

  9. Love this! Too funny! And my cookies would also be black on the bottom, so I think yours are brilliant.
