Groundhog’s Day Cookies!

I have to admit, as a little girl I was always confused on Groundhog’s Day. I thought if there were clouds in the sky, we would have a longer winter so I always wished for a cloudy gloomy day. I didn’t want the sun because it meant the snow would leave and no more snow days!

Don’t laugh! I was little! LOL I have finally got it right! A cloudy day means no shadow and spring is coming soon.

Will He See His ShadowA sunny day means the groundhog sees his shadow and winter will last 6 more weeks! I have my fingers crossed for sun!

Groundhog-Day-CookiesOutline a fuzzy shape for your groundhog by following the outline of the cutter and making a mouth and leg like I did here. Let it dry for about 10 minutes.

Then, with the brown outline icing, fill the groundhog and be messy! If you look closely at mine, you will see small holes.

Next, add a little black icing to the mouth. You may want to use a toothpick or a  BooBoo Stick to  get the icing to the corner of his
