A Christmas Coyote tail, an ear, nestled in between the shortbread stars. Small bits of shortbread cookie easily become detached from the main body of work when laid to rest. The Christmas Coyote is a challenge. Many a neck has cracked and the head severed from its body as I transport the shortbread from cookie sheet to plate. Sigh. What is there to do with a wayward Christmas coyote head, but to dispose of it… Yum. Tasty that. Shortbread. Another check on my Christmas list.
