Cookie Report Plus Craft

by on February 10, 2009 · 19 comments

Orthodontist appointment went well so I came home and baked a quick batch of the butter cookies mentioned earlier. They were okay, but a little too buttery — too much like shortbread. I think what we need for Valentine’s Day are sugar cookies. Not butter cookies.

But I still need to buy more butter and it’s definitely going to be Land o’ Lakes because I found this horrible craft you can do with the box. I can’t believe they allowed this one the Internet, can you? I’m reporting it.

God bless the internet.

So I’m 5 years behind on the joke? Oh man.

Who are you reporting it to?

Anna February 10, 2009 at 2:49 pm

Hmmmm, I don’t know. Who is the highest authority on the Internet? At any rate, this needs to be taken care of. The next thing you know people will be posting porn on-line.

First time (and last time) I have seen it too. It was a jaw dropper.

Anna February 10, 2009 at 3:09 pm

Well, I feel better now. I’m not the first to see it. LOL.

Emily February 10, 2009 at 3:11 pm

Haha, that’s hilarious! I’m buying butter tonight!

Report it to Al Gore. He thought he invented the internet. Honestly, my mother showed me that about fifty years ago. Of course, not on the internet. :-)

This is great! I have a box in my fridge. I am so making that.

Great one. And I haven’t seen it before either. My grandpa had a pen with a lady on it and when you turned it upside down she went from having a swimming suit on to nude. We thought that was pretty funny. I can’t believe he never showed us the butter craft–I’m guessing he’d seen it! ;)
Al Gore, that’s a good one.

AJ February 10, 2009 at 4:50 pm

I had never seen that either! LOL
Probably because we never had “name brand” butter growing up. ;)

But my dad had the same pen that you turned upside down… heehee!

This post has caused me to reflect on how politically incorrect the Land O’Lakes woman is, on many, many levels.

LOL, love it, I will not think of butter the same way.

They do post porn online. But nobody here would view it.

Ellen February 10, 2009 at 6:56 pm

I remember someone bringing this in to school when I was a kid. We thought it was funny.

Anna, What kind of “sugar cookie” are you thinking of for Valentine’s Day? I’ve been looking for a recipe for the sugar cookies I remember from childhood. They were big, half inch thick, slightly chewy, slightly crunchy and had a certain taste I can’t define. My latest trial was Sugar Saucers from Rebecca Rather’s “the Pastry Queen”. They looked right, but they didn’t do it. I think the next trial will be King Arthur’s “Essential Chewy Sugar Cookie”. I haven’t seen anything on your blog that looks like the cookie I’m searching for. I’ve been looking for several years and I think the closest I’ve come in taste is Torticas de Moron, a Cuban cookie. ;-)

My favorite sugar cookie cut-out is this one. It’s probably not the same as you remember, but it’s a good, sturdy, tasty, cut-out. I don’t think I have a favorite round sugar cookie.

The one I like is the second one.e

My brother used to do that trick. He taught it to my daughter when she was about ten, which delighted her and annoyed me. There’s another trick he used to do with a matchbook from Pep Boys that’s even worse!
