Break out the Cookie Gun

Break out the Cookie Gun     

This Wear-Ever Cookie Gun comes complete with 9 shapes and 3 pastry tips in its original box from about sometime in the  fifties. I love it!  Why a favorite?  It's from one of the most important people in my life.  My Auntie Sweetie.  Auntie Sweetie is 94 years young, the best aunt anyone could ever have and my only aunt.  I know my love of baking comes from her.  She recently moved and I was given all her baking items.  Cookie cutters, wooden rolling pins, cookbooks, pans and a cookie gun.  Let's start with an easy recipe.

 I've also added some cute gift tags for your homemade cookies, cakes and handmade crafts.  These can be customized!  Please visit my Etsy Shop @ WellDressedCupcakes and take a peek.  Mention this blog and I'll refund 10% of your order.  Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas!
