IF YOU ARE STILL IN THE PROCESS OF RAISING CHILDREN, BE AWARE. THE TINY FINGERPRINTS THAT SHOW UP ON ALMOST EVERY NEWLY CLEANED SURFACE, THE TOYS SCATTERED AROUND THE HOUSE, THE PILES AND PILES OF LAUNDRY LYING AROUND TO BE TACKLED, WILL DISAPPEAR ALL TOO SOON. AND, YOU WILL, TO YOUR SURPRISE, MISS THEM PROFOUNDLY. THOMAS S. MONSON

Cookie Carny! Spooky Cookie!

This is the second of my Cookie Carnival posts. I realize I did a cookie post just yesterday, and the post before that was about cake, and I have a cupcake post also in the works. I must have a sweet tooth! With Halloween coming up this week, I predict more gym time in the near future!

So onto the Cookie Carnies! This month was another Martha cookie, and another sandwich cookie! I am not sure there is much to say about them. Remember "CP"? He was worried about his reputation, and was worried he would like the cookies too much, so he didn't even try them. He knows that I would blog about it, so he had to sneak a couple on the DL. I can't comment on his status regarding the cookie.

I can make a few comments of my own though...

1) I thought they were fabulously adorable!
2) They looked better then they tasted!
3) They were very easy to make!
4) I love them most because I like to say WHOOPIE! It reminds me of "The Newlywed Game" from the 70's when Bob Eubanks would ask, "Where would your wife say, was the first place you made whoopee? Upstairs, downstairs, or on the stairs?" Then the wife would beat her new husband with a cue card, because he said, upstairs, and really that was her sister, clearly their first time was on the stairs!

Anyways, onto the cookies... (I LOVE GSN!)
Here they are:

LOL. I totally remember the "whoopie" comments on the Newlywed show. Hilarious.

How did you get your pies/cookies to come out flat? Mine were very puffy. I like the look of the flatter cookie.

your post is too funny! I agree, these whoopie pies ended up looking a lot better than they tasted. The pumpkin cream was a dud.

Love the Newlywed Game reference!! I haven't seen that show in ages, and I know that they always have a WHOOPIE question on every episode. Your cookies look great.
