I'm pretty sure this cookie is for the North Carolina Tar Heels.


I have never made anything North Carolina related.

I live in Minnesota. And prior to that North Dakota. And for one short year in DeLand, Florida.

I dont even think I know anyone from North Carolina.

So yeah, finding a Tar Heels cookie cutter…well, not so easy.


Lucky for you (because I know you have been dying to make your own NC cookie) I made a tutorial over at the University of Cookie.


If you would like to know just how I made this cookie and just how easy it is, just stop by and see my QUICK tutorial.

It basically just tells you how to make any "cookie cutter" at home!

  1. What fun! You always come up with such super ideas. Really, be grateful you don’t live near me ’cause I’d be driving you nuts!
    I’m going to check out the tutorials (like I could do these..hah!)and see how you managed such a nifty cookie!

  2. You know me and I’m in North Carolina!
    I also work for, (THE) Dave Colescott, who was not only, “Mr. Indiana Basketball,” in high school, but he’s also a well known Tar Heel player (1977-1980) – So now you can add this to your Tarheel story! 🙂
    I’m still just a girl from Monterey who is a KU fan! Go Kansas!

  3. My SIL just graduated from there last summer. Go Tarheels! They look perfect! He would have loved to bring some of those cookies in for his professor. Good Job!

  4. Add another UNC fan, graduate, NC native, & current resident to your comments. Cute cookies! Love your baking, love your blog, & mostly LOVE your boldness in the faith. So, you can now add another sister in Christ too!
