It definitely feels like Fourth of July weather here in the Midwest. June was quite the scorcher....and we have seen temperatures in the 100s all week already! My 8-year old has been excited about this holiday since her birthday in April when she got a red, white, and blue dress that she deemed perfect for the Fourth!
I really wanted to make some cookies that the KIDS, especially, would enjoy on this holiday. A few months ago I saw these from The Last Course Bakery...and absolutely adored how they dreamed up an Uncle Sam out of a teddy bear cookie cutter...just brilliant!
I made just a few changes to the original version....
and had so much fun adding all the details to these little Uncle Sam's.
I guess I am partial to "Sams"....aren't I?
Have a SAFE and fun Fourth!
