"I don't make the cookies, I make chocolate cupcakes and decorate them this way. We raise pigs and when I have a "Porkapolooza" lunch at work to showcase our products, I serve these as dessert. Everyone thinks they are so cute and they fit perfectly with the lunch theme. This time however I am going to make the ears from strips of fruit belts cut into triangles. I found the wafer cookies got soggy from the icing."

"When my daughter was a teacher, I made these for her 4th grade class's segment on pigs. At the end of the segment, they would watch the movie "Babe" and eat these cookies."

"Alright, the amount of flour is WAY off. I ended up adding about 5 cups! Even then I had to roll these into 1 Tablespoon balls. I also added another teaspoon of vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda. I also flattened them with a glass."
