mushroom cookies ~

Cookies shaped like mushrooms.
Would you expect anything less from me ...
the Mushroom Queen of the neighborhood.

The ones with the red caps are a sour cream sugar cookie with a semi-sweet chocolate connecting the stems to the caps ~ topped with a sweet royal icing glaze.  They look like little Wine Caps.

The brown ones are a delectable ginger spice cookie with a chocolate dipping to hold them together.  

Sam saw these cookies and went, "EWE MUSHROOMS! You ruined the cookies!"  I tried to tell him they are just shaped like mushrooms... no mushrooms are in them.  

I also had some comments about them not being a Christmas "shaped" cookie.  Well...
apparently in Russia they are.  Why?  I don't know; but I like them.

Yum ...
So it begins ...
my crazy week of baking!

Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
