The Great Pillowcase Cookie Quest


Imagine a kitchen transformed into a detective's office, where every Cookie holds a clue, and every crumb is a step closer to solving a delicious mystery. Here's how you can create your own "Cookie Craze" adventure at home with your little ones, inspired by our beloved story.


1. Detective Snooze’s Magnifying Glass Cookies


  • What You Need:

  • Sugar cookie dough (homemade or store-bought)

  • Round cookie cutter (and a smaller one to cut out the center)

  • Royal icing in black and white


  • Method:

  • Roll out your dough and use the round cutters to shape your magnifying glasses.

  • Bake according to your recipe's directions.

  • Once cool, decorate with royal icing to create a handle and a glass effect in the center.


2. Button’s Mystery Morsels


  • What You Need:

  • Chocolate chip cookie dough

  • Mini marshmallows

  • Nuts (optional)


  • Method:

  • Prepare your chocolate chip cookie dough and mix in mini marshmallows and nuts if desired.

  • Drop spoonfuls onto a baking sheet and bake as directed.

  • The marshmallows will melt into the dough, creating mysterious, gooey pockets!


3. Max’s Paw Print Thumbprint Cookies


  • What You Need:

  • Butter cookie dough

  • Jam (strawberry or raspberry works great)


  • Method:

  • Roll your dough into balls and place them on a baking sheet.

  • Use your thumb to press a deep indentation into each ball.

  • Fill the indentations with jam.

  • Bake as per your recipe's instructions, and you'll have adorable paw print cookies!


4. Storytime with Freshly Baked Cookies After baking, gather everyone for a storytime session. Read from "Patchwork Tales: The Pillowcase Files," and let the kids munch on their detective-themed treats. This can be a wonderful way to discuss the story's themes, like teamwork, curiosity, and problem-solving.


Craft a Cookie Detective Badge No detective is complete without a badge! Use cardboard, foil, and markers to craft special badges. Each child can decorate their badge with their initials or a special detective symbol. This craft will help set the scene and give each child a sense of being part of the story.
