National Drizzle Elephant Day

It's not really National Drizzle Elephant day, but I had to use this cookie cutter and it just doesn't seem to fit into any of the other holidays for baking! In fact I rather wonder why anyone would make an elephant cookie cutter? Don't get me wrong, I love and adore elephants. I've had a collection of elephants every since I read "The Secret Garden" as a child. In one chapter, the poor little mite Mary Lennox is wandering around the wuthering halls of Mistlethwaite Manor and discovers a room with a cabinet full of elephant figurines in it. It instantly caught my fancy and I decided to collect elephants from that moment on.

And it did sort of pay off, because one day my little Nephew was messing around in the loft at home and came across the box of my carefully packed-away elephants. He took them all out and played with them; and he told me it was just like finding buried treasure.

But an elephant cookie cutter? I have no idea. So just because it is no holiday whatsoever, I decided to bake some Drizzle Elephant cookies. Bon Apetit!
