…shiver me timbers, matey… there be pirates on the loose!  Okay, forgive me, I’m working on just 3 hours of sleep and had to get my “pirate-ese” out of the way – and that’s all that I could come up with.  While all of you were tucked away in your cozy beds or shakin’ your groove thang out in ‘da clubs last night, this little baker was finishing (ahem, starting) the frosting of these cute little pirate cookies for a lucky little boy’s birthday party today.  Even though I was up until 4am, it really didn’t take me that long!  I tend to bake the same way that I get ready in the morning:  bake the cookies… check my email…  whip up the frosting…  watch about half an hour of “Transformers”…  start the piping… sit down for a quick meal…  Yeah, so what I accomplished last night, with the help of my handy dandy assistant (thanks Val!) in 8 hours, probably would have only taken me about 4 hours if it weren’t for all the dilly-dallying.

Anyways, this was a fun one!  Anything that has to do with pirates, or is out of the norm of your typical holiday cookie decorating is fine by me.  Cookie decorating is like being a little kid and coloring – but unlike my coloring books of yesteryore, with these I have to stay inside the lines!  And oh, I can also eat the colors… wait – I don’t think I had a problem as a kid with eating crayons either.  Mmmm…. Burnt Sienna
