Pooh cookies

A while ago I wrote a post about doing Hello Kitty sugar cookies without a proper cookie cutter and it turned out to be one of my most popular and visited posts. So I guess you will also be interested in knowing how to do Winnie the Pooh cookies the same way.

Here's some step-by-step pictures:

Start with a round shaped cookie.

Cut both sides at an angle, narrowing it at the top.

Use a small tear drop shaped cutter to cut half way on each side of the top, with the point of the drop facing down.

Use the same tear drop cutter to cut tear drop shaped pieces of cookie dough and place the on the holes you’ve made, kind of like a puzzle, creating the ears. Do it already in the baking sheet and don’t worry, while it bakes it will glue together. Press slightly with your finger on the fatter side of the ear.

They’re ready to go to the oven. I’ve also put sticks on mine.

Baked and ready for the frosting, mouth, nose and eyes.

And here it is, a happy Pooh ready to be eaten by a happy child (or adult).

I've also made a cake with a Pooh face to go with the cookies:

Winnie the Pooh and friends cake

Heffalump (don't you just love his name?)

Tigger and Piglet

And as Pooh loves honey so much, I wish you a week as sweet as honey!
