I made these cookies for an outer space themed birthday party. I was looking forward to making these... so many fun options! The birthday boys were 5 and 10, so I wanted to make something that would appeal to both age groups.
I knew right away that I wanted to do aliens. I'm sort of smitten with these little guys. I debated for a bit regarding the second cookie, but ultimately decided Saturn would be the most interesting planet in cookie form. Other than Pluto (poor shunned, excommunicated Pluto) all the rest look the same to me, anyway. The cookie cutter I used is actually meant for making monkey faces, but the ears made for a perfect way to do the rings.
I'm a Pittsburgher with a new found love of baking. This blog will serve as a place for me to share both my successes and misadventures in the kitchen.
