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 […]

Fall Tic-Tac-Toe Cookies

I love coming up with cookies that can double as fun for kids! As I mentioned in an earlier post, I wanted to try out other varieties of my Halloween tic-tac-toe cookies. My youngest got such a kick out of playing it with me, and yes, munching on the pieces, that making another set was […]
