St. Patrick’s Day Cookie Pops

March is here! Finally! The winter may actually end now!!! I feel like time is a wastin’ for St. Patrick’s Day treats, so let’s get right to it. Once I found these adorable paper straws in the dollar bin at Target, I knew what I had to do… That whole photo booth prop thing we all […]

Truffula Tree Cookies

Anyone who decorates cookies knows the difficulties in making a character cookie. You get those eyes or ears just the slightest bit off and it can look like some deranged mutant, as opposed to the sweet creature it was supposed to resemble.

Holiday Tic-Tac-Toe Cookies

Well, you knew it was coming… I’ve had a wee addiction with cookie Tic-Tac-Toe since I crafted a Halloween version this past October. There are just so many possibilities by varying the themes! I made this Fall one too and now my youngest sort of expects one to come out of the oven with each […]
