Ever wondered what we would look like with moustaches?
Naturally so have we… Though, if you have checked out our About Us page, Kai can be seen sporting some rather fine facial hair.
However, Suzi wins at Christmas presents. So, naturally… Moustache Cookie Cutters lying around in our cupboards were begging to be used.
This Martha Stewart gingerbread recipe contained more pepper than I ever would have considered putting in a cookie, but I have learned not to question Martha! (And with good reason too!). Don’t be alarmed by the sheer quantities of spice that appear in the bowl before mixing!!
It’s a brilliant recipe with delicious results, and the perfect consitency to create cookies that hold their shape. Especially in terms of these cutters, that you flip over to use the ‘stamp’ side of to form the moustache detail.
Ours came out a little “crispy” around the edges on a couple, especially if they were situated more toward the back of the oven. This would have been sorted by rolling the dough out not quite so thinly, or shortening the baking time. The rolling, cutting, refridgerating and then baking process does get a little tedious, but once you get into a system it is fairly smooth sailing.
We have had nothing but good feedback from university peers and colleagues with these… and I have not seen ONE person resist putting their cookie to their face prior to eating.
You’d love a moustache for a while, you know you would.
