When I was in high school, I had a hunch I would marry someone who wore a uniform for a living. Most of my friends were in ROTC and I just assumed it would be someone in the military. Little did I know I would marry a police officer.
My husband was about half way through the police academy when I met him. He had just celebrated his 23rd birthday and his lifelong dream to be a police officer was finally happening. I learned right away how to deal with rotating schedules and midnight shifts. For the past 8 years he's worked in our equivalent of the 'projects'.
And I could not be prouder.
Especially since in all my cookie making days he has never complained about the fact that I haven't made cookies specifically for him.
At the age of 40, my uncle has just become a Pennsylvania State Trooper. Whether it be very young or at the age limit cut off, being a cop and choosing a life to serve and protect is still noble and too often overlooked.
After 6 years of marriage and 2 years in the cookie world, it's about time I made some cop cookies.
I've always wanted to make handcuff cookies, but the police tape cookies were my husband's idea.
And that body outline...yeah...his idea, too.
I had to throw in some doughnut cookies for a good laugh.
No party platter would be complete without some personalized cookies.
I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year's Eve!!
