Squirrely Activities

Well I know it has been a little quiet over here in New York City Squirrel land, and I apologize for that. We completed our honeymoon on October 15, and spent the next two weeks living in my mother's basement and desperately trying to secure an apartment in New York City. We ended up getting lucky and finding a really good deal out in Queens. (Does this make us bridge and tunnel people?) We're settling into our new apartment now and I just haven't had the time to focus on my love of squirrels. Also I've only seen two squirrels since we moved out here, and that's a little depressing.

I did want to write a little about some cookies I made while we were still at home, squirrel cookies.

Oh yes, you read that correctly. I went shopping with my grandmother one day in October and we ended up at a little kitchen store that sells a wide variety of cookie cutters. And they had a squirrel cookie cutter! I do have a policy of not buying squirrel stuff for myself (mostly because that would get out of control really fast), but I made an exception and bought it.

What a great purchase! I rolled out some delicious squirrel cookies that very evening using my family's recipe for Best Butter Cookies. They were both delicious and adorable.

We decorated them with frosting and they were gone within about two days. I've got the squirrel cookie cutter here in New York now and I surely do intend to use it again. I suspect that future guests at our apartment will be welcomed with a warm plate of squirrel cookies! Lucky guests!


  1. You up for potentially hosting me and a Spaniard on the weekend of December 15th? We are pretty flexible on the particular days and number of days, but since he'll only be in the country for 4 days (10th to 14th en route to Spain via Mexico) he'd like to get maximum New York if possible.

  2. mmm I would love a squirrel cookie right about now

  3. i want squirrel cookies when i return!!
