I was thinking of something I could make for this contest. While buying groceries;
I figured on making sugar cookies in the shape of mama's face. Well for small sugar cookies you couldn't see the individual pieces that I put into making them. I wanted to also be able to share the pieces with friends. So, I decided on a giant cookie, and not only that a giant pull-apart cookie!
I started with a regular sugar cookie base from scratch, but before I added the flour; I separated the mixture equally in three bowls, and put in flavorings and color. For cooking mama's bandanna I put in red food coloring and strawberry flavoring. For her face, eye shine, and teeth I only put in vanilla flavoring and no coloring. Finally for her hair and eyes color I used baking cocoa powder, and the brown pigment of the powder did the coloring for me.
Then I added the flour and mixed to make the dough.
I let the dough chill for the required time.
While waiting for this to chill I sketched a picture of what I wanted the cookie to look like.
Then rolled each of the separate doughs and used a makeshift square cookie cutter to cut the pieces out of the dough.
I also used a butter knife to quarter these squares.
Arrange the squares to look like mama's face.
You might make need to make smaller rectangles to fit in some spaces.
