Gingerbread Airedales

We're kinda late in posting this but before Christmas, mom and I did a lot of cookie baking and I was the best kitchen helper! Mom mixed up gingerbread cookie batter and I needed to make sure that all of the spices were just right!
Lots of people make gingerbread men for their Christmas cookie platter but not our mom! She wanted to make gingerbread Airedales - lots of them!
These are actually not dog cookies. They're cookies for the hoomans with all of the sugar and molasses and spices but they're still Airedale cookies so we just have to have one of these!I'll bite his head and you get his butt, Mitch!
OMG, you just swooped right in and snagged that right out of my mouth, Mitch! You're a most evil boy!That's okay! There are a lot more on that plate and if I do a high-five I bet mom will share one with me!We'll have to make gingerbread Airedales a tradition every Christmas, mom!

So until next time.................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Hi M & M
They cookies look delightful and we are so glad that you got one - what a waste making great cookies for humans.

We think you should have all the cookies!!!

Great cookies - what a talented momma you have!! I bet there wasn't one last molecule of batter on that spoon after you were done licking (who needs a dishwasher, right??). If they tasted 1/10 as great as they looked, then I bet you were in heaven!!

Brutus the Frenhchie


Wow, those beautiful cookies are cool! Our mommy loves gingerbread cookies and I bet we would too if she would let us have some.

Looks like you guys got a lot of snow up there. Lucky you! However, it may snow here again tonight at least we hope so.

Luv ya guys,

How kewl that you got gingerbread airedale cookies! We got plain ol' round peanut butter cookies. But they're yummy so I won't turn them down.

I bet those antlers you got for xmas are great to gnaw on. Do you think they came from one of Santa's reinndeer?

Those are so cool! Gingerbread Airedales?!!? Wowzers! It reminds me of one of my favorite poems:
"Run, run, as fast as you can!
You can't catch me, I'm the Gingerbread Man!"
Mom should make some gingerbread Sibes! Ha roo roo roo!
Play bows,
PS: We love your new header picture; meant to say that before!

ScrapsofMe said...

What incredibly cute cookies! I've never seen a cookie cutter shaped like that...what, an Airedale running? Or sleeping curled up? Or is that just and handle for holding? My mouf is waterin' just lookin' at em!



Helsie said...

Fantastic !
A blog written by Airedales!
We had a beloved pet Airedale called Sunshine about 10 years ago. She was a beautiful pet and I still miss her even though we have been "minding" our daughter's 2 dogs - a Border Collie and an Australian Cattle Dog - for seven years now !!! (overseas trip to Uk for 5 years then no place to keep dogs that had become OURS!
