Garden Veggie Cookies!

These are fun because they're not made with vegetables, but they look like vegetables.

I made these for my neighbors, who have been bringing me vegetables from their garden for the past few weeks. (I need to take some to my great aunt, too.  She gave us lots of veggies earlier in the summer.)

For the bell peppers, I squished an apple cutter to make it skinnier.  The tomatoes are Wilton pumpkins from the 101 cutters tub.  The cucumbers started life as footballs and I squished the dough to remove the points prior to baking.  The eggplants are either eggplants or pears.  The cutter wasn't labeled, so it's hard to say.  The cherry tomatoes are circles and the chili peppers are chili peppers. :-)

Anyhoo, I was very happy with the colors on these.  I was worried the cucumbers were too dark, but upon closer inspection, they were just about right:

And I really couldn't have been happier with the red bell peppers:

(Is it sad that I took pictures of my produce?  Do I need to get a life?  Be honest.)

So that's all for today.  The neighbors liked the cookies, especially the watermelons. :-/

Oh well, you win some...



  1. that's hilarious....I have been unloading lots of veggies myself!

  2. Next year we'll do a garden...I cleared the space this summer, but by the time I finished it was too late to plant.

  3. Those are my kind of vegetables.... Sweet and vanilla flavored.. Lol

    1. I know, right? These should count toward daily servings of veggies! :-)
