An EE's Christmas cookies

Inspired by some other non Christmas themed cookies my family made I was struck with an idea...

A spare/unused one of these:

Some cutting and bending later:

The size got a bit out of hand and I ran out of material but it looks OK I guess...

Fresh out of the oven:

Obviously dark(er) dough was used.

This has probably been done before but I figured I'd share :)

Use openSCAD to create 3D printed cookie cutters, accurate, but scaled up.

That would definitely be a good way to go but you have to keep in mind not to make the legs too small or the dough will get stuck in the cutters. I also didn't want them to become too big so I stopped at six legs.

Since you brought up 3D printing, why not extrude the dough? Someone should get on that! ;)

Take off a leg and it would be a perfect SOT223-5

... *bite* off a leg to do-so... much tastier ;)

Obviously the SOD-123 is even tastier ;)

  Are you sure? yes | no

LOL. SOT-563, SOT223-5, I'm almost certain there's a 4-pin as well... Take a huge bite to the SOD-123... Eat your way through the surface-mount packages!

I'm visualizing an educational animated gif ;)

SOT23-6 http://www.njr.com/semicon/package/SOT-23-6_E.html

I think they look more like SOT-563

esot.eric wrote 12/24/2015 at 11:07 point

I thought of mentioning these, but I still think the 5pin version is tastier.

if it's shortbread, then it's symmetrical and won't matter.

@ajlitt I was referring to the single chocolate chip placed to mark the orientation. Admittedly I only got the pun when @Benchoff mentioned it
