The Marvel’s Avenger Event is practically upon us, and while haven’t even picked out my wardrobe for the red carpet event at the Tribeca Film Festival, I have made Avengers cookies!
You see, with a little Avenger’s fan in my home, who also happens to be a cookie monster, there was no waiting once the Williams Sonoma cookie cutter set and Ironman spatula arrived in the mail.
Finding a dress can wait! Telling a 2.5 year old he can’t make Avenger cookies is practically begging for a tantrum!
There was only one small problem… I pretty much FAIL when it comes to baking. But any parent will tell you, with tantrums looming, the fear of failure is not as bad as the meltdown of a toddler who just wants his Avenger cookies!
After taking a look at the set, I thought, well this will be easy. They practically made it fool proof! They even included a recipe for sugar cookies. Of course, having now put my son off for making these cookies for two days, there was no way I was going to be able to push my luck any longer! Thank goodness I had premade cookie dough in the fridge!
Everything started out great, the cookie cutters were so easy to use! If my son was a little bit older, he would have been able to do it as well! Very “bad baker” and kid friendly!
However, this is where my luck ended… Please note, if you use premade cookie dough, you will have spreading problems… All of the sudden I was feeling like Loki. (He’s a villain in case you didn’t know this…)
I had killed The Avengers…
Thankfully, the beauty of a toddler is that he doesn’t yet see imperfections. He told me they looked “pretty awesome mommy!”
Squishy had a blast decorating his cookies.
I think my toddler nailed it! What do you think? This is how Williams Sonoma suggests they should be decorated.
Practically perfect right?
My suggestion? Use the recipe Williams Sonoma included in the box, and have fun decorating them. Even if they don’t come out exactly perfect, your Avengers fans (big or small) will love them!
And if all else fail, try using the cookie cutters to cut out Avenger Pancakes!! I foresee many years of fun Avengers food in our future!
You can purchase the Marvel’s Super Hero cookie cutters online for $19.99 at Willams Sonoma.
