Is it still chilly where you are? Tonight might be a great night to stay inside with a mug of cocoa and bake a batch of cookies. But this time, instead of your usual 7-minute cookie routine of unwrapping and slicing a log of dough, why don't you try something new and make a night of it? These Space Invader cookies look difficult to mess up and make a great geek statement... and if you've got a honey as nerdy about old school games as you are, why not whip them up a batch for Valentine's Day? They're sure to impress more than a box of chocolates from the corner store...

You could really build any "pixelated" image into your cookies with this method. Just make sure to work out your plan in a spreadsheet program with colored cells first so that you have a blueprint for your gamer's dozen. And of course, make sure you use safe—and awesome!—oven mits like these that make your hand look like a clickable icon.
