Thank You – Golden Girls Cookies

Written by Mike Tamplin Nov 13, 2012


November is that time of year for giving thanks. Coincidentally, November also happens to be the month I began writing this blog just one year ago. I’d like to take time to share my sincere appreciation for those that helped me make it to this point, as well as encouraged me to keep writing and baking.

I’ve enlisted the help of these four women from Miami (and the original artwork of Glen Hanson) to help me say, “Thank you for being a friend.” I have this strange quirk when someone says, “thank you,” I can’t help but sing the theme song to the Golden Girls (in my head while in public, out loud when home alone). I blame its catchiness for being easily set on mental repeat.

Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, and Sophia will always hold a special place in my heart. When I watch the reruns on TV, the jokes still seem relevant and relatable. Or maybe I relate more to their love of cheesecake.

TV-show aside, I have a lot of people to thank for helping me along this great cookie journey.

I must first begin by giving thanks to my bro and sis. Those two were always willing to hear out my cookie ideas when most would tire of my constant cookie talk. They would answer my late-night texts of concerns I had with a batch idea I was working on, with both encouragement and honest criticism. They would also share in my excitement when I got a new like on Facebook or a friendly comment on my blog posts. And for that, I thank you both.

Another source of great encouragement came from fellow cookiers in this awesome cookie community. It has been enheartening to connect with other cookie artists around the world via Facebook, blogs, or various other forms of social media. I find comfort knowing there are others out there that share this same obsession for making cookies. I would have never thought this hobby would lead to so many online friendships. Sharing your cookie passions keeps me motivated and I thank you all.

This past year has been amazing and I look forward to the many cookie batches to come. To all my friends and family, I thank you wholeheartedly.

Now, who’s in the mood for cheesecake?

Thanks friend and cheesecake

  1. I want to buy these! You really should start selling them. 90’s nostalgia is about to go real big

  2. Hi! I love these! My 9 year old daughter’s soccer team this fall is the Golden Girls (they have gold jerseys). I am also a hobbyist in this field and typically attempt things like this after my kiddos are in bed. Did you use a template for the 4 different cookies? If I could somehow pull something similar to this off for our end of the season gathering it would be awesome. I have all season to figure this out and they wouldn’t look this good but I could maybe try. I am amazed at how much these resemble the actual Golden Girls. Great job!!!

  3. Can I order these? Do you ship?

    1. Sorry, I don’t take customer orders.

  4. How did you do the faces? is there a cookie cuter out there I need for these?

  5. Mike these are fabulous!! I love watching all of your tutorials. They help Me out more than you will ever know. Keep up your amazing work!

  6. I can’t get over how amazing these cookies are…I recently came across your blog and you do some awesome work. As a cookie maker myself (nowhere near as good as you)I’m glad you share your work and ideas. I will be trying these myself…Golden Girls is one of my favorite shows. Keep up the good work hopefully one day my work will be as good as yours
