Dreidel Cookie Disaster

Dreidel Cookies

If there’s one thing I love, it’s delicious food. If there’s another thing I love, it’s delicious food that’s easy to make. Bonus points if it’s SO easy that there are only three steps from Start to Nothing-But-Crumbs-Left-On-The-Plate.

These dreidel cookies, spotted by NJFamily.com in the December, 2010 issue of FamilyFun Magazine, meet all the above requirements – you don’t even have to bake to enjoy them, which is fortunate for those of us who can’t be trusted to operate the oven. Just cut one edge of a fig newton into the dreidel’s point, insert a pretzel stick handle into the other end, decorate with icing, and eat!

Of course, here at Craft Fail nothing is as easy as it seems. In fact, occasionally it’s simplicity itself that ends up making things complicated.


Reader Anna demonstrates what I’m talking about on her blog, Random Handprints, where she proves that really straightforward instructions can sometimes benefit from a little more detail.

For example, if the instructions simply say, “Decorate with icing,” it might be helpful if they specified “BUT NOT GEL ICING” – unless you like cookies that look like they were embellished with Aquafresh toothpaste. Oy vey.

    Seems to me that common sense would tell you not to use the gel icing…and not to cut so much of the corners off. >.>
