I used to write. I used to write letters, I used to sign my name.

Last year, my friend Hayley flew off to California and asked if there was anything I wanted. The obvious answer was, of course, 'COOKIE CUTTERS!!' After seeing this post by Ellie, I'd been a bit obsessed with getting my hands on these William Sonoma cutters. I love the idea of imprinting your own messages on cookies!


Amazingly, Hayley found them (THANK YOU HAYLEY) and Ellie and I were overjoyed at the prospect of bringing printed cookies to the UK masses. Ellie has already posted her creations - aren't they gorgeous?


However, as she hinted in her post, I'd already had different ideas of what to do with mine. Um.

SWEARY BISCUITS.


I made a batch of these for my friend's party a couple of weeks ago - it was worth it for the reaction of my friends, from 'Oh wowww, you made biscuits, how lovely...' to 'SARAHHH. These are RUDE!'

Inspiration... and space.

I'd, er, been watching a fair bit of Father Ted.

I used the sugar cookies recipe from the Hummingbird book as I know they're yummy, but they came out a little scruffy (also I am not talented at icing), so next time I think I'll try the recommended recipe from the William Sonoma website. Scruffy or not, though, they've got to be the funniest adventure in baking ever.

Now, come on. What would you print on YOUR cookies?

  1. !!!! The last one is the best, fact.

    (I also like "So is your face". I used to say this at work all the time, and the Polish guy on my team though "so's your" was all one word. Sosjor. )

    How depressing to say that I was in California last year. It was only 6 weeks ago.

    p.s. I am great.

  12. Yay, Father Ted biscuits! What a shame that "That would be an ecuminical matter" probably wouldn't fit on a biscuit, unless it was a gigantic biscuit... not a bad thing, at all!

  20. Heeeeeee!!! Amazing! I bet they tasted so much better for having rude words printed on them, didn't they? I think I'd feel a bit funny about eating an arse biscuit though...!

  21. Ahhh these are amazing. I'd be doing swear words too I think,
    or maybe childhood naughty words like bum, and willy.
