So y’all know I have a thing for Etsy vintage. Remind me to post pictures of the boy’s new fedora.

Months ago, I stumbled upon vintage cookie cutters & couldn’t think of any good reason not to get them, so I did.

But I had no rolling pin, so I couldn’t really do anything with them.

They’re fun. There are five of them, in playing card suits (heart, diamond, spade, club) and there’s an extra bonus star.

I ended up getting a rolling pin about a week ago, you can see it in the background of the photo. It’s black! A nice gothic touch to baking time.

So today I finally baked sugar cookies.

I need to work on my rolling skills because they ended up rather uneven, but they taste good and they don’t look half bad, so I’m calling that a win. Especially considering it was my very first sugar cookie attempt.

Will eventually make a batch with black & red icing. Not feeling daring enough for that just yet.

Awesome, I love them! (Confession: I have never made rolled-out cookies before, but I have a cool boat-shaped cookie-cutter – and a bunny-shaped one – that I am going to try. It’s on my 101 things in 1001 days list.)

My parents have those cookie cutters! They’re huge bridge players, so my mom used to make sugar cookies for bridge nights with them. πŸ™‚
