I never thought my love of baking and 8-bit video games could be combined into one awesome item…until now!

tetris-cookies.jpgPeople have way too much free time on their hands; HOWEVER, it occasionally works out for the benefit of mankind. Thanks to a lovely Flickr how-to by Eva Funderburgh, I can now impress all my friends at my next party with these gorgeous 8-bit cookies!

Yes friends, they are Tetris cookies. Eva and her husband use a Playdoh extruder, of all things, to squeeze out long rows of dough, and then lay the dough logs on top of each other to make patterns. After chilling, they cut the cookies from the formed roll and voila! Awesome patterned cookies from scratch.

I think I’m in love.
