Back To School Tic-Tac-Toe Cookies

It was right before we left for our last vacation of the summer that I thought of the idea for a back to school version of my tic-tac-toe cookie obsession. I think I’ve done five different themes so far…maybe six…

Even though I am in denial I will have to set an alarm and drag the kids out of bed to get ready in the morning, I must be subconsciously preparing myself. I know there are some of you that have already begun, but I’m not rushing our after Labor Day start of the new year.

  1. Your cute little smiley faces on cookies are irresistible! Adorable notebook paper? Yes, please! Beautifully done, as always! 🙂

  2. Smart adaptation of the holly leaf!! Golf clap! 🙂 So so cute, as always! Also, I didn’t realize you took a little summer break on the ol’ bloggy blog as well. I’m glad we’re both back to posting as you’re my cookie twin/inspiration/mentor/everything in b/t 😉 Big hugs! xo

    • It’s hard to blog (and bake) when the kids are on summer break, so I realized I have to take a little hiatus as well. I don’t like being chained to the oven when I could be sitting pool side with them anyway! 🙂 Big hugs back at ‘cha!
