Root Beer Float Cookies

Last week our school celebrated Teacher Appreciation Week with treating the staff to something special in their break room. I volunteered to bring cookies for Root Beer Float day because I was dying to try out this idea… The staff has received a healthy dose of my creations the past two years and I worry they will grow tired […]

Jelly Bean Jar Cookies

How can Easter be less than two weeks away and I’ve only made ONE new-to-me cookie design for it?! Yikes. Life has been busy. I made these for my monthly blog stint on the website Bake It Up a Notch. I am assuming you have a few jelly beans in your cupboard right now and perhaps dough […]

Some people are super good at characters and way more brave than I […]

A few more Valentine sweet hearts…

The thing with heart shaped cookies is that the decorating possibilities are endless. It’s almost daunting to me sometimes. An abundance of piping patterns. Any number of colors. A sea of sprinkles.
