...on my way, to where the air is sweet...
Can you tell me how to get,
How to get to Sesame Street?
Today, we're getting to Sesame Street via cookies. I think this guy would approve:
Sesame Street premiered in 1969...the same year I was born.
Cookie Monster was born; Bridget was born. Coincidence? Separated at birth?
Anyhoo...I love Sesame Street. I hear they're making Cookie eat vegetables these days. I really don't want to believe that.
I would have substituted the Elmo cookie cutter for Grover. Or Count. Or Bert. Or Big Bird. (I'm old.) Speaking of Grover, please tell me you have this book for your kids. To this day, it is one of my favorites.
***Keep in mind, if you are making these for a party, you might want to stick with 1 or 2 characters. For these 3 guys, I needed to make 10 different icing colors.***
The cookies here are a new recipe. Are you ready?
They're CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT CUT-OUTS. As in, Nutella Cut-Outs.
You can find the recipe here, in the book!!!
Since the cookies are a deep, dark brown, there was no need to use black icing to fill in the mouths on Cookie Monster or Oscar.
How'd you like a set of these for your own? It seems only appropriate for the week of Jim Henson's birthday. ♥ Kiddo is convinced that "only people with little kids" will enter. I had to remind him that his 42-year-old mother made a special trip to the mall just to purchase these...for HERSELF. ;)
