I fell in love in doing log cookies in my wooden log box.  It’s simple to design.  Putting different doughs together and chilling till hard, then cutting to bake.  Because the colored doughs already produce a design when sliced, decorative icing normally is not needed so the whole cookie is not as sweet as those icing sugar cookies, yet it can be as cute.  Santa shirt cookies are easy.  Just put the red dough first, a black belt, red dough again to finish.  Then draw the buckle and buttons with white icing.  Super cute!

This time I’m using Doreen Greenspan vanilla cookie dough as the base.  It’s quite crunchy and great for rolling.  I rolled the remainder of the red dough to make stars + mickey mouse shape to make more Christmas cookies!  They are super nice to give as gifts.

When I tried making pokeballs in the wooden log box in October, I noticed the shape / design is quite similar to minions eyes.  So for this baby shower for my good friend, I made minion cookies (since she loves minion) as take away for guests.  Turns out they are gorgeous to decorate around the cake too.

It may be a very simple method, but the effect is very cute with bold colors and people who receive these cookies will be very happy.  Most importantly is the taste: they don’t taste as sweet as those cookies covered with icing.
