Check out the recipe and more images on the Zanda Panda website.  Remember, summer’s not officially over until September 23rd – and you wouldn’t want to wear white when eating blueberry pie anyway 🙂

Here’s where we picked the berries for the pie:

This is Rose’s Berry Farm, in Glastonbury, CT.  We also picked raspberries there for another delicious pie.

How to make Cute Dalamatian Puppy Cookies – Recipe

Dalmatian Puppy Cookies

These seem to be everyone’s favorite yummy thing made from the Puppy mold.
The recipe is also on the back of the Puppy Mold’s box.

Dalmatian Puppy Cookie made with ZANDA PANDA's Puppy Mold!

Dalmatian Puppy Cookie made with ZANDA PANDA's Puppy Mold!




No-spread cookie dough:

  • 6 cups flour
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 cups unsalted butter
  • 2 cups superfine sugar (not powdered)
  • 2 large eggs, slightly beaten
  • 3 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 1 tsp. fine grain (table) salt
  • Red gel food coloring (optional)

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla and almond extracts. Mix well.

Mix dry ingredients together and add gradually to egg mixture. Mix until flour is completely incorporated. Chill for 1 to 2 hours.

Lightly dust Puppy Mold with flour. For one big, round cookie, roll cookie dough into a 9” circle, then press into the mold.

For individual Puppy Cookies, dust mold with flour and press dough into the puppy shape of the mold.

For best detail, bake right in the mold, but cookies can also be baked on a cookie sheet. Bake 7-12 minutes, depending on thickness, until edges are golden brown.

To make a Dalmatian Puppy Cookie: Paint melted chocolate directly into the mold for eyes, nose and spots. For a pink tongue, add a tiny bit of red gel food coloring (use a toothpick) to a small amount of dough, blend and press into the mold.  Then gently press cookie dough into just the puppy shape of the mold.   Bake at 350 degrees F for 8-12 minutes, depending on thickness.  Melted chocolate can also be painted on the cookie after baking, using a small artist’s brush.

Recipe adapted from: Capitts at BakeSpace

Next, I’d like to try making border collie puppy cookies using a little cocoa in half the cookie dough…


BTW, we’re taking reservations on the first shipment of Puppy molds.  Also, when you join the ZP mailing list, we’ll send you a coupon code for a discount on your Puppy mold!

How to make a Butterfly-Themed Garden Party/Tea Party


Butterfly-Themed Spring/Summer Tea Party!

Butterfly-Themed Garden/ Tea Party!

Yes, I had to wait patiently for the apple tree to bloom for this shot – and for a sunny day!

Jump over to the Zanda Panda website to see how to make all the goodies pictured above, such as butterfly cake and cupcake toppers, embossed tea sandwiches, Kaleidoscope Heart and Butterfly mini sandwich cookies and port wine cheese butterflies on crackers!

I didn’t have room to show the iced tea with little butterfly ice cubes (just freeze colorful fruit juices in the Butterfly mold, then add to iced tea). Beautiful stoneware pottery courtesy of the very talented Ria Lira Levine.


Easy, fun ideas for spring or summer entertaining – and a really tasteful way to tell Mom how much you love her this Mother’s Day!
