santa peanut blossoms

well guys,
i discovered the art of food crafting insanity.
it may have been around for awhile, and i knew i had it, but reality came to grips when i was making my billion and one dozen christmas cookies this week.

i discovered that i can no longer make normal christmas cookies.
nope. cookies for me need to have shape. 
and color. 
and originality. 

eyes! yes! eyes!

i told you it was a form of insanity, 
when i can't make normal cookies.
cuz for some reason, 
i have to play with my food. 

even if it's using a ready made mix since i want to spend time putting eyes on them instead of measuring how much sugar or vanilla is needed. 

so here's the game i played.

aww crap! i screwed up already! 
better try to win this game... did i win?
but i already made these here, and even though i like the homemade ones MUCH MUCH MUCH better, i still wanted in the game.

so i read the game directions further...
eyes?!?! YES!
i like these ummm...weird lookin' things already...?!?!
and candy glue a red sixlet candy for the nose.
hey! well lookie at that!
still looks a little weird to me, but i guess i'm still in the game?
oh my! isn't he silly lookin'?
he's my kinda abnormal cookie.

oh what fun, it is to bake...
who says santa can't be chocolate?!
and he's yummy too.
oh the games people play!
so see, reindeers aren't the only ones who can play games this time of year.
