I was sad to see YumSugar’s report about the Mother’s Cookies shutdown. Apparently, the company stopped baking their iconic line of cookies as a result of “significant increases in raw material costs and the … record high fuel costs.”

I have to admit, I’m sad to see the “Circus Animal” cookies go. I have fond
memories of my dad sneaking these past my high-end pastry chef mom as a fun treat when I was a kid. Granted, I think it was the pink frosting and
sprinkles that appealed to me, not the taste. Looks like Chowhounds are
feeling my pain
too. Guess I will have to invest in these cookie cutters and figure out how to make them myself.
