Three days! While everyone else is preparing for their Thanksgiving feast, I’m making shopping lists with toaster pastries and licorice. I’m also whipping up some yummy “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life”-inspired sugar cookies.
I originally had the idea for the Luke’s Diner coffee cup cookies and wanted to round it out with cookies representing each of the four seasons. To make the coffee cups, I used a mitten cookie cutter and cut off the rounded top. I shaped the bottom of the cup and the handle just a tad to give it more of a 90s giant mug-feel that is Luke’s sign.
The seasonal cookies were made using themed cookie cutters.
- Winter: snowflake
- Spring: butterfly
- Summer: dolphin
- Fall: acorn
The dolphin is a little out of left field, but it was a cookie cutter I already had!
My go-to recipe for sugar cookies is from The American Test Kitchen Baking Book. Although they’re all equally tasty, the Luke’s Diner cookie is my favorite.
What treats are you making (or buying) for your “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” marathon?
