It's National Cookie Day!
Let's celebrate it by taking a look at some wonderful cookies.
We'll start with a cookie of Cookie Monster eating a cookie.
(It's like Muppet Inception.)

Cookie Monster's a macaron, a meringue-based, filled cookie that's crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, currently made in every possible shape, flavor and color.
(drum roll, please...)
Disney Tsum Tsums!
Honestly, I don't know whether I should eat them or adopt them, but I DO know someone better give me tsum soon!
Of course, macarons are just one kind of cookie.
I found so many fabulous cookies, it was really hard to choose which ones to feature.
You see, there are cookies that look like they ought to be framed:

(I guess you'd start eating the edges and corners first, right?)
...and gingerbread cookie wedding "cakes."

(There's a tutorial. Are you feeling adventurous?)
And I don't know about you guys, but I want to plant this and see if it grows.

Those succulents just look so... so... succulent.
Of course, if desert plants aren't your thing, how about a beautiful "needlepoint" heart?

Even the "mesh" is hand-piped!
For those who dream of adventure, here's the "Traveling Girl," inspired by a handmade doll.

Don't you want to tag along, or at least meet her tailor?
You know, there are so many great cookies, I could just keep adding more and more.
Still, I guess it would probably be wise to stop.

What? You want one more? Well, WHO am I to deny you?
(Owl pay for that pun later, won't I?)
OK. I could never say no to you guys...
Let's end with this gorgeous cookie, shall we?
Everything is piped freehand, with no stencils.
(Here's a link to a comparison of the cookie and the tablecloth that inspired it.)
I hope we've inspired you to have some cookies for National Cookie Day!
Have a Sweet day!
