I awoke to soft snow falling on the pine trees and covered streets. Several inches are forecasted for the DC metro area as the picturesque scene outside is the most blissful happening of Mother Nature. It evokes childhood memories of snow days, sledding, snowball fights, building snowmen and homemade hot chocolate. The neighborhood kids bundled up in hats, scarves, snow pants, jackets and mittens would get out early to the hill behind our house, dragging their silver, metal saucers that would whisk them down the slope. Those metal saucers were COLD even through our thick snow pants. We would stay out for hours until the chill was too much and then take a hot chocolate break. During which time we would put our soaked woolen mittens on the radiator to dry them out best we could, before dashing back outside.
These mitten cookies were made for my grand-nephew’s 4th birthday party at his nursery school. With a winter birthday, the mitten cutter seemed like the perfect choice. The stencils create a look reminiscent of knitted designs in the wool mittens of yesteryear.Mitten Shortbread Cookies
