If however, you are only reading to see my weaknesses so that you can feel superior, today is your lucky day!
My name is Cindy and I have an entire drawer in my kitchen dedicated to cookie cutters. (I also have an entire cupboard filled with cake decorating tools.)
So thank you friends and family for sacrificing your thighs, bellies, etc.
If you are wondering, I use a recipe from an old Sesame Street Library book. I'm not sure which volume. But I scanned an image of mine for you to reference.
