Normally, we do try to get this done a little earlier in December.
But since Lisey has moved out now, we had to wait until she came back for a visit. If we did only four cookies, this would be way too easy for you guys and where’s the fun in that?
(4 x 3 x 2 x 1= only 24 possibilities!)
Anyway! If you’re new here, you should know that we have a tradition of decorating Christmas cookies in rather non-traditional ways.
Someone even made a Grover cookie this year!
And we also have a tradition of holding a cookie-guessing contest here on the blog each year. The winner gets a $100 Amazon gift card, emailed from me!
Here’s the way this works. I’ll give you a photo of numbered cookies, plus a list of the five cookie artists, and you can leave your guess in a comment.
First, we have a ninja:
Then Beaker, from the Muppets:
Then a pink Christmas tree, which got a little broken before I took a photo:
Next up, Wario, from Mario Kart: (made from a gingerbread cookie cutter shape)
A sad little Christmas tree:
And lastly, a penguin:
A twist to make this tougher!
Someone got the answer shockingly early last year, so to make it slightly harder this year, we have a twist.
We have five cookie artists, listed here in age order:
- Mr. FG
But one of us has entered two cookies into this year’s photo. If I’m doing my probability math right, that means the odds are 5 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1= 600 possibilities.
(I could be wrong on this, though, so if you are better at probability math than me, pipe up and tell me where I’ve gotten off-track.)
If this turns out to be impossibly hard and no one figures it out, then I will give the gift card to whoever got the closest first. 😉
So, leave your comment guesses like so, using one person’s name twice:
Without further ado, here are the numbered cookies, arranged in no particular order, except how I thought they looked nice:
And now it’s time to get guessing.
Alrighty! Off you go!
