I love coming up with cookies that can double as fun for kids! As I mentioned in an earlier post, I wanted to try out other varieties of my Halloween tic-tac-toe cookies. My youngest got such a kick out of playing it with me, and yes, munching on the pieces, that making another set was inevitable. And necessary, since we ate them all.
This was easily done with the mass of mini cookie cutters I own and changing up frosting colors to suit the season. Behold, the autumn version of a cookie Tic-Tac-Toe game!
Even though mini cookies are, well, mini, the board itself is a huge six inches square. It had to be big enough that when a grid was piped, the playing pieces could fit in the spaces. I used a scalloped pastry cutter and ruler as a guide.
My son favors the baby acorn, but the little red leaf is my favorite.
I don’t think you can go wrong when you pipe 0r draw a simple, sweet face on a cookie. The cuteness factor increases tenfold, don’t you think?
I think this set would be super for Thanksgiving. It always seems to take FOVEVER for the turkey dinner to be done, so why not keep the kiddies busy with a game and a snack? Well, it’s not the healthiest of snacks, but some people do put marshmallows on their sweet potatoes, so I hardly see how a tiny bit more sugar is going to make a difference. It is a holiday after all…
These cookies most likely won’t last long, so I am bound to make a winter edition. I don’t want to rush that though. Instead I will enjoy the rest of the Wisconsin autumn while it here.
Happy Fall to you!
They’re so adorable I can barely take it!! You’re the cookie tic-tac-toe queen!
Nothing like rehashing an old idea. 😉 The main reason is that I love to make the kiddies smile. Thanks Michelle!
love the attention to detail. always-adorable projects, even if re-hashed!
Great ideas are worth repeating. 🙂 Loved this idea when you debuted it with your Halloween version. I can’t take how cute those faces are!!
These are so cute! I actually laughed out loud, though, when I scrolled down and saw the advertisement with people brushing their teeth. Guess all that sugar… 🙂
You know, the ads don’t show up for me as the blogger, but there is a box there saying “an ad may appear here”. That’s funny it was a dental hygiene one!
How would you package these to give as a favor for Thanksgiving dinner for the kiddies? I’d be afraid they’d get all jumbled if just put in a cello bag. Some kind of separated box with a lid? *racking brain over here*
I would put the Tic Tac Toe board in one bag and the pieces in another. I think that would be fine! Then maybe both in a little box?
