The right to bear arms, well in my case my gun of choice is my cookie gun. Honestly, did you think that someone who plays with Flour as much as I do would actually pack a real gun in my purse?
Over the years I have had numerous cookie guns. My Mom and Aunts packed the Mirro cookie gun and they toted their guns from town to town making holiday cookies over the years. Unfortunately, I no longer have my Mom's gun as it just wore out from constant firing.
I have owned newer cookie guns by Mirro, Wilton, and William Sonoma. I have experienced some major and minor difficulties with all. The William Sonoma gun would always end up with cookie dough between the metal tube and the outside plastic tube. There was no way to clean it. Several friends have experienced the same issue. WS allowed a refund so that was a good thing. The barrel of the newer Wilton was just not wide enough. I have not tried the Martha Stewart cookie gun but wonder if she has made improvements with her gun since she spent time in the Slammer. Martha probably learned a few things about guns from some expert gun slinging mamas while on her little trip to the Big Kitchen.
Last year while watching QVC (come on we all admit that we tune in from time to time and order some must have items) they kept talking about the new Prepology cookie gun that they were unveiling later in the day. I quickly sat myself down with a large ice tea in hand and my phone in the other hand anticipating the "gun of cookie guns". When I looked into those dual barrels on my big screen TV it was love at first sight. When the gun arrived, I received not one but two large gun metal gray baking sheets as a bonus. The gun came fully loaded with ammunition in the shape of trees and hearts and a variety of shinny tips. I was now officially armed and ready for a shoot out with my new Prepology cookie gun. Charleston Heston would have been so proud of me.
I have been known to tote my gun around these here parts of Atlanta and have also carried it onto a plane. I had to do a whole lot of explaining at Homleand Security check points. I have to say that I love my gun and keep it within close reach just in case some stranger comes knocking at my door looking to steal from my cookie jar! As Clint Eastwood would say to Cookie Monster "Go ahead and make my day"!
