To be fair, these aren’t really recipes rather inspiration. Inspiration for what? Bookies! Now, I’m not going to claim that I came up with the name ‘bookies’. Certainly, someone before me has thought of this as a name for cookies styled after books! But when I was brainstorming today for clever treat ideas to commemorate the ‘Back to School’ season, my brain came up with ‘bookies.’ And that’s where my search began!
Typing ‘book cookies’ into Google produces more results than you might imagine. And while I’m sure most of them don’t apply to what I was looking for, I found quite a few that do! I couldn’t pick just one, so below are links to a few of my favorites. These definitely look like they would take some serious skill and patience to pull off, but I’m sure they’d taste just as sweet with a few mistakes here and there. Plus, those mistakes would make them one-of-a-kind, and everyone knows how valuable rare books are!
Here’s the links! I would have included the pictures themselves, but most are copyright protected and I’m not looking for legal trouble. That wouldn’t be very sweet at all! Though the links from flickr automatically open as pictures when you list them, so click those images for more information 🙂
