One of the best things about sugar cookies is being able to use cookie cutters. One thing I love about cookie cutters is within seconds one is able to create an arsenal of little men and women. The point of using a cookie cutter as a mold is that it should create identical shapes, people and random objects. Once baked the cookies all have slightly different shapes and sizes.
It’s the shapes, sizes, and differences that make me love each and every one of them. It’s the fact that no two cookies are the same that makes me smile. How often in our lives do we try to put people into these cookie cutters try to create people who look like us, act like us, and even think like us. If we focus on the differences how things could be different. Both the small things, the cookie being larger than the one next to it, or maybe burnt around the edges, and the large, missing arms, legs and other body parts make us unique different and better. Why is it that we spend to much time focusing on how we can try to make people the same instead of looking at and understanding our differences?
Maybe I don’t fit into your cookie cutter shape, but maybe I don’t have to.
