Thrilling Hunger Games Shortbread Cookies

March 26, 2012

These Hunger Games shortbread cookies from are a thrilling treat.  Simple buttery shortbread cookies are designed with the book's (now a movie) symbol of the Mockingjay. The stencil was made by outlining the symbol on a sheet of acetate paper.  You will need a sharp knife or sharp pair of scissors to cut out the stencil.  Cocoa powder is dusted over the stencil which leaves the imprint.  Bake these cookies before heading to the movies or munch on them while snuggling up with the novel.
