Firetruck Cookies

A friend of mine recently went on a ride-along with her local fire department. She asked me if I would make some cookies for her to give to the station house as a way to express her gratitude. Yay! Of course I will!

As you may or may not know, I just recently began this cookie making adventure. Which means I do not have too many cookie cutters to work with yet. I had about one week to make these cookies and no firetruck cookie cutter. I searched all of the craft stores in my area. The only firetruck cutter I found was in a box with 100 other cutters AND it was TINY. Long story short- I HAND CUT these babies, hydrants AND trucks.

I am thankful my friend thought of cookies as a way to say "thank you" and that she asked me to make them. Although I was a little nervous...what colors should they be? How detailed should they be? Do you know how nerve racking it is making a firetruck cookie for a fireman? I fretted for HOURS until finally my hubs said, "It is a COOKIE Babe, they are gonna love it". He's right.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love your firetruck and hydrant cookies! They are so detailed and looks like you have been doing them for years! You did a great job!

  2. Hi, Your cookies look amazing. Do you have - could you point me in the direction of a nice cookie recipe. Yours looked great and looked like they didn't spread to much, they still look perfect. I want to try make these, my boyfriend is a fireman. Thanks, Miranda, from New Zealand.
