Oscar cookies

I love these cookies from Zabar’s so much, I had to give them their own post before they, um, disappeared.

I posted my Oscar predictions here,  and am convinced Best Picture will come down to these two movies.

What do you think?

Follow me live on Twitter during the awards @loisaltermark and enter to win a copy of American Hustle – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack here.


  1. Those are super cute cookies. I am not much into the Oscars, or all the movie nominated- but would love to have a cookie like that with Frozen on it!!

  2. So many great niminees, it is hard to tell. I think 12 Years A Slave will win Best Picture.

  3. The cookies look yummy. I will follow you of course and also tweet myself from @EstelleSErasmus. I hope American Hustle wins though, cause I heard it was great.
