Transformer Cookies

transformer-cookiesA woman I went to boarding school with in Guatemala told me how she made Transformer cookies with her sons, and what a success it was. She just used a gingerbread man cookie cutter and squared off the head, arms, and feet. I thought that was a great idea, so we made them.

My oldest son Bryan actually sculpted a more complicated Transformer with a metal spatula while the dough was still on the counter. Then we iced the cookies with icing. I was able to get such bright bold primary colors from icing dye made for professionals who decorate cakes for a living. You can buy the icing dye from craft supply stores that have a cake-decorating aisle.

  2. Now you’re the second person that I’ve heard recently that left facebook! Interesting! I have actually thought about doing that. I’m afraid I would be friendless. 🙂

    My mom went to boarding school in Guatemala too. Several years ago I took a group of teens on a mission trip there and actually ran into several people that knew my mom or my grandparents!

    Oh and I love the cookies!
