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 […]

A Year in Cookies – 2013 Review

I enjoyed posting some of my favorite cookie creations of 2013 on Facebook today, so I thought I would share them here on the blog as well. Time moves so quickly… I had forgotten about some and others seem to have been made so long ago. It was fun to revisit all the work that […]
