In the last post I mentioned the book-themed baby shower that I threw for my best friend. In addition to the alphabet cupcakes, I also made these colourful cookies to look like the “play-clay cookies” in the book Mmm, Cookies! by Robert Munsch.

The recipe I used was actually a simple chocolate chip cookie recipe, but before I baked them, I broke the dough up into several different balls and added food colouring paste to colour the dough. I then took small pieces of the dough and mashed them together in random combinations to look like the play-dough cookies in the book. Finally I topped them with a mix of m&ms and star-shaped quins. They turned out just like the cookies in the book and were a huge hit at the shower!

Some of the other book-themed foods we made were Cloudy with a Chance of ‘Meatballs’, 3 Little ‘Pigs in a Blanket’, Mr. Macgregor’s ‘Garden Veggies’ (Peter Rabbit), the fruits from the Very Hungry Caterpillar, and Green deviled Eggs and Ham. It was a fun theme to work with!
