Easy Firework Cookies for the 4th!

There is still time left to put togetherΒ cookie pops before the 4th of July weekend! So fun. So easy. So festive! I posted a tiny tutorial on my Facebook page yesterday, but wanted to give you more details aboutΒ it. Follow along! I used a pointy scalloped cookie cutter (is that what you’d call it?) for […]

Uncle Sam Cookies

Doesn’t it seem, every year, in a blink of an eye it’s July 4th?! I decided to get ahead of the game this year. I spotted a few Uncle Sam items in the craft stores months ago and tucked that little bit of inspiration away for future cookies. See? It’s not such a bad thing […]
