Dita Von Teese's Spiced Mice Butter CookiesJune 10, 2015
You know, when I came across this cookie recipe of Dita whilst searching for her interior photos, I wanted to make them immediately. I am not a big fan of making cookies, or working with dough and flour altogether, because it gives such a mess. I know, I know, I sound horrible when I say this: but I just cannot stand a kitchen counter top littered with mess. And this comes from someone who loves cooking!!
But I saw the perfect opportunity to make these extremely cute cookies when my beloved boyfriend had a day out with his older brother. They have a strong bond but barely see eachother, due to my brother in law being an international truckdriver and thus being on the road an aweful lot of time, dropping by whenever he has a chance or needs help with his laptop. So, when they asked me to come along to Militracks I refused, with in mind that they could have a nice brotherly day with just the two of them, and told them that when they came home, cute cookies were waiting for them.
