For Adults and Bachelorettes Only

I wish this post came with a recipe, but I really blew it with this one.  I'm heading back to Iowa this weekend for my friend Sara's bachelorette party and then on to the Field of Dreams for a wedding.  I bought this charming little cookie cutter for the last bachelorette party I attended, and I spent last night struggling to make use of it once again.  

I'm really bad about making cookies and keeping the recipes that I like so I can make them again, so I always end up doing a search for sugar cookie recipes.  I settled on one from Martha Stewart, and I was not impressed.  Maybe it was my fault because I made the cookies before reading the comments at the bottom, all of which recommended using another egg or more liquid of some sort.  I also assumed that all sugar cookies benefit from refrigeration before they're rolled out, but when I took a rock hard lump from the fridge I realized that nowhere in the recipe did it suggest chilling the dough.    

Dough that has been chilled but doesn't need to be is a huge pain to roll out and slice.  Trust me on this one.  

But alas, I did get some satisfactory results.  And a little Lance Armstrong in the bottom right!

After baking...

Aren't they fun?

And you can decorate them in exciting ways.  Chocolate sprinkles!

And since we're from Iowa, I had to do some cows.  

All frosted and ready to go.

Why didn't you make one with crab shaped sprinkles?

That is so funny! I'm going to Chicago this weekend for a bachelorette party and now I am so wishing I had a penis cookie cutter. Shoot!
