Cornhole. Bag Toss. Bags. Tailgate Toss.
However you call it, this outdoor game is a staple at BBQs, campgrounds, and tailgate parties across the country.

Speaking of customized Cornhole boards, how about some custom COOKIE Cornhole boards and bags to sweeten game day? Using some simple cookie cutters, with a small tweak, you can earn bragging rights and win the day with your own Cornhole cookies!
Potted plants. Macramé art. These flashbacks from a 1970's-era living room are trendy again! And how do we celebrate home decor trends? With cookie-fied versions, of course! These hanging macramé plant cookies are made with a simple cutter that's found in many cookier's cutter arsenals- an ice cream cone shape. Let me show you!
Tequila. Salt. Lime.
Putting together a collection of cookies for a Cinco de Mayo birthday created a challenge. I wanted to include this quintessential indulgence in the set of cookies, but I didn't have a shot glass cutter.
Cutter flips to the rescue!
We all know that cookie cutters are made differently. Some are made with molded plastic, some are made with bent metal, some are created with a 3D printer. I genuinely don't have a preference of plastic over metal- there are pros and cons to both.
However, there is one feature of some plastic cutters that I like- a HANDLE!
Oh wait, you didn't know that some cutters have handles? Let me show you!
I love making monogram cookies! They are perfect for many cookie events like weddings, bridal and baby showers, and birthday celebrations. Monogram cookies can easily tie into any decor theme, but floral monograms always have my heart! Take a look at some of my simple tips to make floral monogram cookies the star of your cookie show!
Yard Maintenance: One of those grown-up tasks that both my husband and I dislike. Between pulling weeds and trimming with the weed-whacker, we would much rather spend our weekend afternoons doing something other than yard-work. It was a glorious day when our eldest child was old enough to work the lawnmower, and we happily pay him a small fee to take care of the grass cutting chore. Unfortunately, pulling weeds is akin to pulling teeth- you literally can't pay my kids to do it. I'm not looking forward to the day where the voluntold help no longer lives under my roof.
It happened again.
I had every intention of planning out new Thanksgiving designs and shopping around for the cutest and newest Thanksgiving cookie cutters. And then life happened. Wasn't Easter just yesterday?! Where did the time go?
Needless to say, I turned to my old trusty creative cutter skills to bail me out once again. I was able to freshen up my Thanksgiving designs, and I didn't need new cutters after all!
Muwhahahahahaha! These Mad Scientist cookies were inspired by something else I made...
Back in 2013, I had a request for baby diaper cookies. I didn't have a diaper cutter, so I hand cut every single diaper cookie for that set. I was very early in my "cookie career", and didn't watermark my cookie pictures at that point. My friend, a contributor to Babycenter.com, wrote an article about my small cookie enterprise and included a picture of those diaper cookies. Although the article is no longer available, the photograph of those diaper cookies was pinned on Pinterest and has been re-pinned many times! You might recognize it from your own search!
Have you ever been stuck with something? Being stuck with the dishes after a big family meal. Being stuck with walking the dog when it's pouring rain. Maybe it's a literal stuck, like insisting on grabbing a live cactus at Lowe's even though your parents warned you not to touch it (ahem... youngest Clough child).
I'm Amy. Wife, Mom, former science teacher- and now full time cookie baker on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Pull up a chair and we'll create! I'll bring the coffee- maybe Mike (The Cookie Widower) will make it for us.
