Happy Birthday America

It definitely feels like Fourth of July weather here in the Midwest.  June was quite the scorcher....and we have seen temperatures in the 100s all week already!  My 8-year old has been excited about this holiday since her birthday in April when she got a red, white, and blue dress that she deemed perfect for the Fourth!

I really wanted to make some cookies that the KIDS, especially, would enjoy on this holiday.  A few months ago I saw these from The Last Course Bakery...and absolutely adored how they dreamed up an Uncle Sam out of a teddy bear cookie cutter...just brilliant!

I made just a few changes to the original version....

and had so much fun adding all the details to these little Uncle Sam's.

I guess I am partial to "Sams"....aren't I?

Have a SAFE and fun Fourth!


  1. These cookies are the cutest! The photo of the kids is priceless! Have a wonderful Independence Day celebration.

    1. Awww...thanks Paula...you always make my day! Enjoy your Fourth celebrations with your family, too!!!

  2. Wow, Your Uncle Sam cookies are amazing and adorable, just like your children:) Happy 4th, Amalia!
