"You’ll shoot your eye out"

Well, I couldn’t resist making these cookies. They weren’t for an order, just for my own personal amusement.
A Christmas Story has long been my favorite holiday movie, as I am sure many of yours. I have seen this movie no less than 3,762 times. Easily. I am the dork who would watch it on loop around the holidays if I could.
Seriously, who hasn’t tried sticking their tongue to a frozen anything just to see if it would stick? C’mon people, I know you’ve done it 🙂

Every year when I bundle up my little guy we recite “I can’t put my arms down!”
The list of funny moments/quotes from this movie go on and on…
So inspiration was born! I didn’t have cutters for these, although I have seen that if you had purchased the special dvd gift set you would have gotten some. Why buy when they play it over and over on TBS this time of year?
Poor Ralphie… And seriously, who didn’t feel for the Old Man when that lamp came in… oooh sexy… I should have made a cookie with the leg all glued back together…that would have been funny!
I took the pictures when the cookies were still wet, as you can probably tell, because I just couldn’t wait to post them!
Anyway, what’s your favorite holiday movie? I’d love to hear… and don’t forget to “Drink more Ovaltine”!

    Your are awesome and these cookies rock! The Christmas Story is such a great movie! I think I need to torture the kids this year and make them watch it. Last year I took my 13 year old to see Its a Wonderful Life, and he actually liked it.

    He would adore these but he wouldn't want to eat them becaus ethey're so cute! These would be awesome for a cookie tray at the holidays!

    These cookies are just great! I love A Christmas Story. It is under our tree this year so we don't have to watch it with commercials!

    Very creative!
    favorite movie, Frosty. I love when he says "Happy Birthday".That's all I can come up with, I'll have to start watching Christmas movies to pick a new one.

    In response to your question about the Kiss tree getting knocked over…it doesn't. It's wider at the bottom and as long as you open the two bottom pieces opposite of eachother (like a + sign) it balances it.

    I'll take pictures of it when I take it down so you can it flat and without candy.

    Those are great! So creative!
    I finally made time to make some Christmas cookies and use some of the cutters from the Anne Clark set I won. Thank you again, and Merry Christmas!

    LOL, I'm probably one of the few people who haven't seen that movie. I know it but don't "know" it as I've seen just bits and pieces of it. With that said the leg lamp cookie I do know about. 🙂

    Awesome job, CC!

    OMG!! I love these cookies. That movie is my fave and I would watch the 24 hour loop of it if my hubby would let me. 🙂

    Thank you for this post. I am so going to mark this and make them next year

    My son would love these cookies! He so loves the movie that he and his wife named their French bulldog puppy "Ralphie" because they got him just before Christmas. I wish I saw this before Christmas this year…enjoying reading your blog!
