Christmas Tree Farm Cookies

As soon as I spied these straws, I knew exactly what I would make with them. That was in August. Their wood grain immediately had me thinking Christmas tree farm and the idea eventually became a classroom treat! First gather up your little trees, any design you please… I used my wonderful FooDoodlers to help with the […]

A Cookie Tree of Gratitude

Here’s a short post on a fun Thanksgiving treat for your family get-together next week, because who could turn down cookies, even if there is pie? I put a little twist on the Gratitude Wreath Cookie I made last year with my kids, and created this Gratitude Tree platter. It’s sort of like a family tree…the family shares their […]

Easy Ghost and Mummy Cookies for Halloween!

It turns out my youngest is a bit scared of Halloween this year. So much so, he may choose to stay home instead of trick-or-treating. Not even the lure of candy will get him out there. I’m not sure what spurred this sudden wariness about the holiday, but I know he’s freaked out by the creepy […]

Uncle Sam Cookies

Summer Tic-Tac-Toe Cookies

HAGS! Or #HAGS. This was written in my 5th grade son’s yearbook, next to his friends’ signatures. What the heck is that? Hags?! All I could picture was a white-haired old lady with bumps on her nose. I figured I would have to inquire once I unloaded the backpacks full of papers, art supplies, and stray locker items. […]

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 […]
