So, apparently Cinco de Mayo is a relevant holiday and has nothing to do with Mexican Independence day. Personally, I just thought it was another day for Americans to get shwasted. And did you know that U.S. didn’t start observing this day until 2005? That was like, seven years ago. WHAT?
Anyway, this weekend is Cinco de Mayo and the dogs are off to a flyball tournament aptly named, “Cinco de Flyo.” At these tournaments, my friend and her lovely flyball dog racing friends have a ton of fun and enjoy getting away from the rigors of everyday life with a specialty cocktail in one hand and a treat in the other.
This week’s treats are based on this “recipe” I found while searching for alternatives to the pinata cookies. At the end of the day, I feel like I would have done less work if I’d gone ahead and made the stinkin’ pinata cookies after all. Geesh. This was a trial.
I want to put this out there – if you have a sturdy sugar cookie recipe, one that you know can stand up to being baked into odd shapes (say, a folded taco shape?), then, by all means, use it! These sugar cookies are delicious on their own, BUT MAN, were they a pan in tuchus to fold.
