that is brilliant!! my baby boy is deaf and we're learning asl as well as doing avt and those cookies are the awesomest thing i've seen in a while. harry doesn't do the sign for cookie yet (so far he's just mastered "more" and "snow") but boy does he flip out when i do the sign for cookie!

That is wonderful. My mom and sister are interpreters so I've been around it pretty much my whole life. I never would have thought to use a hand cookie cutter, but it is such a great idea. I'm gonna have to pick one up at Michael's next time I'm there.

Thanks for the tip about cutting the fingers longer, and thanks for the post.

Those are really, truly awesome!  I learned ASL alphabet about 30 years ago when a deaf girl attended my grade school.  I don't remember all of it, but I remembered enough to go through it and spell out R-I-L-E-Y and i love you.  Anyway, I have a metal hand cookie cutter and I might have to do something like this with it! 

Here's a link to a cookiecutter site with a few different metal cutters, including one in the shape of the "I love you" sign

Don't forget we can also do the "evil eye" sign and other finger gestures with these... for grown ups!

I think this idea is totally awesome! Riley is such a cute name! As I have many friends that are partially or completely deaf I haven't taken any classes but they have taught me! It is sooo awesome your mom is learning! Cute cookies too!

Such a cool idea!  I passed this on to my mom -- I think she'll love it!

"Riley, I love you"  ... in cookies!!  Brilliant!  What did she think of them?  I will be sharing this idea with a friend of mine who is deaf and whom I know will greatly appreciate the amazing work your Mom did.  This is the most heartwarming thing I've seen done for another person in a long time, and I think it's so special that your little girl has such a loving grandmother- not just speaking in terms of using fingerspelling, but in COOKIES!   Smiley

I've been signing for 16 years and have been working as an interpreter for deaf children for the last 4 years, and my students would love these! Heck, I love these. I may have to make a batch myself if I can find a cookie cutter! Grin Grin Grin
