What are they? Can you figure out what these cookies are? You can tell they kind of look like a house but why the circle in the middle? Stumped? Ok, I’ll give you the answer. These cookies are birdhouses.
Some cookie ideas do not turn out as envisioned. I trimmed a bungalow cookie cutter to resemble a birdhouse. I then added a circle in the middle of the cookie which should be a bit bigger. The gingerbread roof looks more squiggly than quaint. Maybe if I added a perch beneath the circle the cookie would be more recognizable as a birdhouse.
Every cookie artisan occasionally creates a cookie that does not turn out as imagined. I already have ideas of how to perfect this cookie. I will give this design another try sometime in the future. Stay tuned!
