My Grandma makes frosted sugar cookies in every shape for every holiday. Alas, she is getting too old to bake hundreds of cookies for her grandchildren multiple times a year, so I decided to try to bake my own. Of course, I cheated on the dough and used a sugar cookie mix from Trader Joe's. All went well except for making the mistake of using cake frosting for the men's black hats. It never dried. Whoopsies.
This is a majestic eagle statue in Fort Greene Park. One of the best parts about having visitors (aside from seeing them of course) is that they motivate you to visit your own city. Brooklyn is full of eagle statutes. Go find them.
